Comment Registration Reminder - Again
Let us revisit my friendly reminder about the need to register before you attempt to post a comment on this blog. Even though the requirement is prominently posted at the top of this page over on the right-hand corner, some of you have not seen it or ignored it, or both.
"ANONYMOUS" NOT ACCEPTABLE
Several of you have attempted to post as "Anonymous', which is an unacceptable moniker for this blog. It creates too much confusion, so please just be clever and pick a different handle if you don't want to use your own name. If you select one that is already taken I'll let you know.
Recently someone tried to post using an un-registered moniker and I just rejected it without reading it... we've had plenty of time to adapt and there is that reminder at the top of the page. However, this person - obviously someone who supports your mayor and is operating with a VERY limited vocabulary and a significant unfamiliarity with the English language - later tried to post again, using the same moniker. This time, though, he or she just raked me over the coals for not posting the earlier piece. I went back and read it and would have posted it if the person had bothered to register. However, because that requires him or her to identify themselves to me, I know that will never happen, especially now, after the load of foul language included in the last one.
A PLACE FOR DISCUSSION
Amusingly, this person accused me of failing to post opinions different than mine, which all of you reading this blog for some time know is just not true. I WANT this blog to be a place where ALL sides of an issue can be discussed. But, the gutless anonymous cowards out there just refuse to participate. If they can't hide behind a tree and spew epithets, then they won't participate at all. So be it.
To those of you who HAVE chosen to register and participate - thanks. I appreciate each comment, even if I don't agree with it. Keep them coming...
