Basically, I swing a machete around willy nilly, slashing comments that I think are in poor taste or include unwarranted personal attacks on people. If the commenters are anonymous, I put very little thought into the process. If you’re anonymous, I figure you might be a troll living in your mother’s basement in Philadelphia with no connection whatsoever to Humboldt, so why respect your anonymous drivel? And even if you live in Humboldt, why worry about someone who doesn’t put their real name on their comments?
On the other hand, if you’re a real person and you use your real name, then you deserve an explanation as to why your comments were slashed. I feel I should, at the very least, justify by actions. Send me an email and I’ll be happy to explain why I cut your comment. We can discuss it. Maybe you’ll be able to show me the error of my ways, and I’ll change my mind and allow your comments.
In a matter of weeks this entire blog will redirect you to a new, kick-ass McK Press website with all sorts of news content. So stay tuned!
