When you’re the owner of a small blog, you don’t like to police things like the comments section. Ideally, especially after so many years working on bigger blogs, you assume that the people you’ve brought with you know how to act like adults and how to get along civilly when disagreements arise.
Regrettably, a couple of bad apples found a bigger soapbox to speak on around here, so we dealt with one person a couple of months ago, and now we’re not going to be dealing with Wingnut any more.
I’ve made the decision as benevolent dictator of this blog that people who can’t or won’t respect one another don’t earn the right to be part of the conversation just because they can type on a keyboard, and in this case, fewer comments may lead to more community discussion.
Those of you who have literally bought and paid for this blog have been among those who’ve suggested that it was time to prune the tree, so I listened to my constituents, and ultimately came to a decision that I feel is in the best interests of the TMR community. That, and it’s my blog, too. I don’t want my community harangued or harassed for disagreeing with the flow of discussion.
That’s enough about that. On with content.
