I just spent 30 minutes going through comments which Matt had pulled out of the comment stream from yesterday.
I went through and removed a fair amount of the comment–I put a note in it–Tim removed the comment–or something like that.
In these crazy times we still need to avoid political commenting—all it makes is for ‘bad blood’–and in the end we end up being like the old Yahoo boards–totally out of control.
When Matt pulls out comments it temporarily ‘bans’ the person. As I went through and edited the comments the person is no longer banned.
As I mentioned before only 1 or 2 people have been permanently banned and I want to keep it that way–you folks are all too damned smart and we don’t want to lose your brain.
