One bad apple can spoil the barrel. Because of this, I will be moderating comments for a while. Because I feel free to say anything I want to on this blog, I didn't mind if people wanted to say harsh things to me in response - which is why I have not deleted mean comments I may have received. But the bad apple is taking things too far and is, in my opinion, becoming a distraction.
My goal here isn't to silence valid criticism of me regarding the topics I choose to discuss, so feel free to write whatever you want in that regard. My goal is to weed out repetitious blathering and comments that have little or nothing to do with the subjects at hand.
Hopefully, I will be able to cease moderating comments sometime in the near future.
