Countdown to the Opening Bars of "I Hate This Country, Americans Are Just a Bunch of Jesusfreak SHEEPLE"

Begins now.

Sung to the tune of "We don't listen to flawed Main Stream Media Polls (especially since they're all in the Government's pocket) around here". Kind of like Elvis ripping off 'Aura Lee' for Love Me Tender.

(Incidentally, at this blog I have deleted precisely two comments in as many years, and both were from people who know me offline and referenced information I considered too personal to be shared online. So don't be shy! You aren't going into a moderation queue and unless you really overreach yourself, you aren't getting deleted. Some of us can take a little back-and-forth on these here internets.)

Well... that principle sure as shit didn't last long.

If you are talking about comments being closed at "Racists, Racists, Everywhere," Thad, that's (a) not the same as deleting individual comments and (b) due not to my overwhelming urge to CRUSH DISSENT, but rather to my feeling that the conversation had reduced itself to a back-and-forth between Ms. Lauren and OHNOES.

While I like both commenters well enough, when an entire thread devolves to a conversation between two people, I'd just as soon they took it to email.

If you're referring to my changing the post Amanda linked to most recently, that's because I'm sick and tired of her hackster habit of linking me with paragraph after paragraph of things I didn't say.

I don't tolerate poor reading comprehension, and I'm not here to prop up her ego, and I detest people who need to trample on someone else to fill the holes they have within themselves anyway.

All that aside, if you have something to add that you feel deserved a hearing, feel free to email me: I mean to sift through the thread at "Racists, Racists Everywhere" and pick out some things I thought were good counterpoints sometime in the next 2-3 days, and I'll be happy to include your remarks in that, if they're a notch or two above "you're a wingnut asshole and you suck."

Well, I'd assumed that there were comments attached to the post Amanda linked to before you deep-sixed the entire thing, comments included.

Even if that's not the case, I still have to feel it's a teensy bit hypocritical of you to boast about how "some of us can take a little back-and-forth on these here internets" and then immediately thereafter decide that the appropriate way to respond to Amanda was to purge your own post and replace it with a big hunk of boilerplate snark.

Plus, you know, the comments-closing thing in the other thread. Which probably deserved at least some sort of explanatory note.

Look, far be it from me to tell you how to run your blog, but it does seem a bit ridiculous for you to crow about how you like nothing better than a good round of interweb fisticuffs, and then quit the ring in a huff at the first low blow.

[N.B. And, again, I only have your word for it that what Amanda wrote was, in fact, a low blow. That's kind of the whole problem here.]

You have my word too if it means anything.

Though, technically Ilyka, you could have POSTED in the Me/Lauren discussion before closing it with something "Alright, wrap it up you two. Go get a room." or something.
