Once again I compelled to chew some ass and explain some rules for ignorant motherfuckers that take advantage of my gentle nature and calm demeanor.
Now I know and understand that most of my readers are respectful and calm when sober, but occasionally some of the newcomers step over the line and when I say step over the line I mean they really. step. over. the. line.
It’s almost always exclusively the new folks. Oh, I’m not saying the regulars don’t spat, but that’s usually lightweight shit and it’s stuff that I kinda sorta blame myself for – when I moderate comments I look for certain online handles or keywords instead of reading the whole comment and occasionally I let a provocative comment slip by. When that happens I let both parties get a couple good licks in and then I call a halt to it which is respected by my regular readers which by the way, I appreciate y’all respecting boundaries.
It seems like after the elections have ended I’ve had several readers come out of their li’l liberal closets. One of them was tikigod who thought that my sources for news was just too fucking conservative and I really need to start publishing the liberal side. I ran his IP to make sure it wasn’t Sammy or one of his lackeys fucking with me (yes, your IP shows with your comments) and it came back to an area near Orlando FL. I put up with his shit for a while then banned his ass and deleted every comment on this blog. It’s my blog and I can do that.
A few days later, some asshole that goes by the name BobDawes1 chimes in. His writing and commenting style matched tikigod’s so I ran his IP too. Guess what? It matched tikigod’s exactly, but I humored him for a minute.
Then the motherfucker insulted one of my regulars and called him a pedophile for no fucking reason whatsoever. That pissed me off so I held the comment for a while, waiting until I had time to come up with a reasonable way to tell him to shove a dick down his throat. Before I could do that, he came back with another comment in the same post HERE. In case you’re to lazy/loaded to hit the link, here’s a screenshot:
Okay. BobDawes1 is a prime example of how to get your fucking ass banned from this site.
#1 do not espouse your liberal views here.
#2 do not expect me to embrace your liberal views.
#3 do not insult a regular reader.
#4 do not tell me what to do on my own site.
#5 do not insult me.
It doesn’t take all 5 to get banned – piss me off bad enough on either of them and it’ll get you banned. Ask Alan, he’ll tell you – you may be able to view the site but your voice is silenced.
Okay. After all that, I’ve banned maybe 5 readers from commenting and there’s very few comments that I don’t post. Except for Angel – I used to ban her daily but she comes back like a possum after fish guts in a garbage can. I’ve learned to just tolerate her.
Like I said, most of y’all are respectful and that’s appreciated more than you know – this post was directed more towards the newcomers than you.
So for the newcomers, let’s get this straight: This is my blog. I put in the time, the labor and the hosting fees. I pretty much do it without pay and I can publish what I want when I want. If you don’t like it, get the fuck out of here. I don’t need or want your headaches, traffic or hassles.
Okay. I’m done.
