My Comment Policy

I finally got my first piece of successful comment spam today (there have been some other attempts, but they never even managed to get far enough to actually put down the url of their stupid ponzi schemes), so that makes a good a time as any to write down my comment policy. Spammers and trolls, please read! It will save you wasted keystrokes, time, and brain cells.

  1. I delete comment spam.
  2. I delete boring trolling attempts. One big difference between Usenet and a weblog is that you don't have to tolerate other points of view; if you really really want to do pedestrian trolling, you can set up your own weblog and do it there.
  3. Personal attacks need to be really funny, or I'll delete them.

"This ain't the goddamn Barney show, I'm not a goddamn purple dinosaur, and I don't give a flying fuck about your *feelings.* I don't love you, I don't want to be your friend, and as far as I'm concerned, caring means not setting your house on fire."
