A Word On Comments

Obnoxious comments that attack someone personally , yes myself included, will be deleted. Of course what is obnoxious to one depends on perspective but since this is my blog, my perspective wins. :) The internet is open and available for those with access to a computer and internet connectivity. There are endless sites and if not people are free to create their own.

I flirted with the idea of not allowing anon comments but decided to leave it as is for now especially after an interesting comment regarding what went down in Puerto Rico. I am not against debate or disagreement, but disagreement is based on personal attacks and insults, well that just takes up space. So let's discuss things si? If people want to do hit and run comments most likely those comments will be deleted or at the very least, ignored.

Oh and a very special note to the staffers of a certain NYC Council member.....I know where you work. :P

oh come on. there's gotta be room for anonymous posts. yes, anonymity can be a cloak for cowards, but it also provides a safe haven for those to diagree (or agree) without having their identities impact the content of their comments. let us disagree!

the issue isn't about anonymous posts that disagree with what is said. they issue is with posts that personally insult or are meant to insult. so disagree all u want. i know i always do. :P

Disagreement is fine dc bt not when the disagreements are really insults. Personally I think if people are gonna disagree then carajo stand up for your point of view, but that's just me. Lately, the tone of comments have been disgusting to say the least. That will not be tolerated.

DC I don't think you understood the post, she said she flirted with the idea of not allowing anon comments. Another thing she said, if you use irrational if you want to call them arguments, (like ad hominem: attacks on a person) then they will be deleted.

Eloquent disagreeing is difficult without resorting to insults and attacks on a person.

Obnoxious comments insult regardless of the individual's age that is target of the insult.

A better explanation of this fallacy is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem

Ay si soy tan vieja dc. :P Nah mean I left alot of the Puerto Rico comments which were obnoxious but weren't attacking on a personal level.

I deleted the really insulting comments...no one is allowed to call me a puta for example except um me. This is not a place for other people to air their personal beefs with my friends as some of the nastier comments did.

I did have to add the word verification option because wll dammnit I really don't need a bigger cock.

well, let's not knock bigger cocks, man. :) i agree with you guys. i think you know i tend to disagree a bit w/you, too, but really personal insults are a sad waste of time. keep it up, though.

By the way, I am interviewing Panama for my show tomorrow. (8:30 p.m. on WBGO, 88.3 FM or wbgo.org.) i can plug my show, right?
