A Plea For Civil CommentsAugust 6, 2008
I generally don’t like editing or deleting comments on this blog — I appreciate people speaking their mind, and I only take action if the comment is intended to be offensive, trolling or downright mean to another person.
In the past couple days, I’ve been a bit dismayed at some comments on this blog that are, shall we say, less than kind toward other commentators… maybe not “mean”, per se, but inching toward that line.
I have no desire to wield my censorship stick (and believe me, oh yes, I do have one, and it glows and everything!) on the comments section, but I need to ask that you guys who read this blog and care enough to comment on the articles — which I love, by the way, thanks! — please PLEASE keep it civil down there. If you disagree with someone, fine, say so, but do so in a way that will allow the two of you to be snuggle buddies after all is said and done. If the spark of fierce emotion lights up deep within your soul, find a fun, creative way to let it out rather than a stream of potty talk (I like that phrase).
I would appreciate it, and so would the other people who visit, read and comment on WAAAGH!
In other news, since apparently nothing is going to happen this week other than GameSpy ticking me off, I’m going to take off from Thursday through Saturday on a last-minute visit to Texas to visit a friend who’s getting married. I’m going to detach from my computer for those three days — not even taking my laptop — so I’ll be a bit incommunicado until Sunday. The good news for you all is that this is me tempting fate, and you just know major major news will drop the second I’m out of town, so I’m happy in advance for that. Y’all need it.
