There are a few of my posts that have garnered rather large and intense comments sections (such as here and here)--and I'm not just trying to toot my own Tootie horn here! I'm working up to deep, philosophical point about freedom of speech, people.
Some of those comments are interesting and insightful while others are downright vicious and hurtful--not to mention my favorite category: unfounded salacious rumors! Who knew that Bob was in a lesbian love triangle??? Go figure.
I've had a longstanding hands-off approach to all the comments--yes, even the nasty ones about yours truly. I figure that we are policed and poofed enough on other message boards that I would just let freedom ring on my blog. I don't exactly feel like I'm qualified to be the judge, jury, and executioner since I am no King Solomon. Besides, most trolls and troublemakers end up hanging themselves with their own rope anyway.
Since I don't have official "community standards," I thought I would just let you know where I stand on all the foofaraw.
Would you prefer that the comments be subject to my Big Brother approval or would you rather take the good with the bad and sort it out for yourself???
