Obnoxious Comments

Monday, November 24th, 2003 · 1 Comment

We all know about the problem of comment spam that faces bloggers. Lately, though, I’ve been faced with a rare breed of commenters. Let’s call them “Asshole Commenters.” These are the people who have nothing good to say. These are the people who manage to find the time to insult me, my tastes, my writing. There have been a number of Asshole Commenters visiting my blog lately, most recently this morning. These are the folks who use derogatory words whose meaning they probably don’t even know. They are the people who probably live miserable lives, so unhappy with themselves that they get off by visiting blogs and putting down the authors.

To you, Asshole Commenters, I say: Go away. You’re not wanted here. Your comments are deleted and I do not shed light on them. Thanks to you, I’ve added the following disclaimer to my comment forms:

    Note: Comment spam will be deleted, as will any other comments deemed by the author of this blog as being inappropriate, defaming, or obnoxious. The author of this blog maintains sole discretion in these decisions and may delete at will.

For those of you who are not Asshole Commenters (and this is all of you who read my blog regularly and/or contribute to it in meaningful ways), please do not let this post discourage you. I welcome comments with open arms. I think comments really add to my blog. I even invite you to disagree with me, to challenge me.

Also note that I’ve now made name and email address required to post, but your email address will not be displayed anywhere on my site. This is to protect the innocent (and your address from spammers).

    I believe the technical term of these people is “Trolls”… blog trolls… newsgroup trolls… etc.
