It’s hard to read, but Bill Schmalfeldt tried to post this on Hogewash! earlier this month. He complains (I know, surprise) that John does not let Schmalfeldt’s comments appear at Hogewash!.
By Bill’s analysis, this then means that John is in fact moderating the comments, and therefore has responsibility for the thoroughly nasty and often true things said about Bill Schmalfeldt.
If I decide to edit or delete comments, then I’m moderating and as such will be sued by Schmalfeldt for things I did not say. But clearly if I do not moderate the comments then nasty things will begin to appear here.
But am I the kind of man who would edit comments, therefore opening myself up to charges of moderating, which as we all know could lead to my being blamed for thingsI didn’t say? Clearly I’m not the kind of man who would leave nasty comments alone, as this lead to jeopardy.
Have I made my decision then?
