A couple people have been sorely offended when I have deleted comments that violate my policies here. As a reminder, I ask that your comments be on-topic, civil in tone, not make slurs or highly offensive remarks about other religions (disagreeing with doctrines and beliefs is OK, when it’s on-topic), and not be excessively long and rambling. Links to video content will usually be deleted because I don’t want to take the time to screen video content, and links to hostile or offensive sites (most anti-Mormon sites) will usually be deleted because I don’t want to give added visibility to them.
Of course, there is a double standard. My posts may violate any of those policies. For example, I could go ahead and link to MormonCult.org, if I wanted to. And I could say something offensive to the good Christians of Wisconsin, like, “Not all true Christians are Packers Fans.” But if you try such rubbish, SNIP! Or I may even pull out my E-Taser! Why the double standard? Because this blog, sad to say, is an expression of MY free speech, not yours. I’m really sorry about that, but those who are bothered by that are welcome to start their own blog.
Repeat postings of deleted comments is another form of bad behavior that really tries my patience (hello – if I deleted it once, I’m obviously not willing to have it posted again).
