Moderation in all things

Up to this point, I have not used comment moderation.

That changed today.

It was one individual who brought this about. A person who has no interest in religious matters, but merely trolls through the blogosphere putting rude, crude and homophobic insults in the comment section, usually having nothing to do with the subject of the post.

It was one particularly crude comment, directed at Grandmére Mimi and me, which was the last straw. If he'd tried this shite in my home I'd have tossed him out. I figured I had the right to do the same on my home page.

Fred Preuss, is banned from this site. All of his previous posts have now been removed. There is no court of appeal.

And quite right too. The B*s*a*d!

I concur with doorman, well, except the last part.

Over the years I've had relatively few commenters whom I've had to ban, but ban I did when they began crossing lines a bit too often.

Malcolm, I saw the crude comment before you deleted it. There's no excuse for that sort thing. He left one comment at my place that was bitterly sarcastic, but not outright nasty. I would not hesitate to ban him if he tried that nastiness at my place. Good for you.
