Here are the guidelines the editor of this and the other community websites, Mark Maley has set down for the comments section of our blogs:
About commenting: We want to give readers the chance to comment on your posts by using the commenting feature. However, people have to be registered in order to comment. For now, we are going to let each blogger decide whether to post a comment or not. However, almost all comments you receive should be approved – unless it’s obscene, in bad taste or libelous. If someone disagrees with you, we still want their comments by your post.
Approving, deleting (no editing allowed): NEVER EDIT a comment; if you do we can be held liable for the content of the comment. Also, do not delete a comment. If you don’t want a comment posted, you can “unpublish” it, but we want to keep a record of what kind of comments you’re receiving.
They’re pretty straightforward and easy to understand. And yet, out of the dozens of bloggers on the various community sites, only one just can’t seem to comprehend, and has been in a consistent state of consternation, now asking for guidance from his readers.
Of course, I’m talking about Greg Kowalski who is so inept he couldn’t find his way out of a phone booth.
Many readers have gone on record chastising thin-skinned Greg for deleting their comments even before they’re published. That is in clear violation of the rules set forth by the editor of our blogs.
Greg, of course, who can’t go two paragraphs without butchering the English language, has no idea what all the fuss is about. Blatantly refusing to follow the guidelines (“almost all comments you receive should be approved”), he merrily begs and pleads for people to write to him, but when they do, he zaps their comments before they see the light of day.
The editor’s goal is that comments should rarely be deleted. Kowalski deletes them frequently.
If you’ve been victimized by his censorship, you need to let the editor know how you feel. Kowalski has to learn that he can’t always have his way. Life is full of set principles to follow. Sometimes, there is no petition drive to bail you out.
Speaking of petitions, while other bloggers that Kowalski criticizes write about commendable issues like education, taxes, crime, sex predators, illegal immigration, the military, love of country, etc., Kowalski selfishly wants to save his precious spot on a meaningless commission.
He is Mr. Irrelevant.
