Comments now moderated

Anonymous drove me to it.
I now have comment moderation turned on.
Go back and read what "anonymous" added on the "strongly worded email" post and you'll see why.
I'm open to constructive comments on this issue, but I'm not open to vicious ignorant ranting. Especially from someone who won't use their name. Anonymous thinks they know the whole story, when in fact they know so little it's painful. And to quote our friend Dr. Monkey, your free speech rights apply to YOUR blog, not to your comments on mine.

Do you folks think I should change the status and allow only registered users to comment?

Update: I've changed to registered users only. I don't even want that uninformed ignorant venom showing up in my email box.

Yes. Only allowing registered users to comment eliminates anonymous asswipes who love to be mean.

I am so sorry that this mess gets worse and worse. Do what you must with comments- that people want to pick you apart and as anonymous is a disgrace.

You have dignity and you have a heart. I am just sorry that this has all devolved in this manner.

Hang in there!!! xoxoxox Lots of love to you.

"You have dignity and you have a heart. I am just sorry that this has all devolved in this manner."

Fran is right!

I wish I could screen the comments for you, then you would not even SEE the ignorant rudeness. I guess only allowing registered users is sort of like doing that!

As an aside, that Turkey family in the right hand nav, where did they come from?

Anonymous has been one creepy stalker - that's for sure!

I found that image on the internet by typing in Happy Thanksgiving. Is it you???????

Sounds like a great idea. Why even give that loser a voice? All you need is for some A-hole to harass you on your own blog.

I don't think anybody should be allowed to comment anonymously. It is too bad people have to hide behind false names because they can't own up to their opinions.

Even non-anonymous commenters often don't have profiles, so if this stuff is persistent, do what you need to do. I saw all of those as they showed up in my email. Which happens even if you catch them, because they are emailed to all your commenters right away. So at least have moderated comments if this keeps happening.

BTW, I'm not sure I even told you that I've been following your saga and hope that your bloggy friends cyber wishes are helping.

I went back and left a comment to Anonymous on that post. I have never heard such crazy bullshit in my life as his/her last comment. What a complete jackass.

You gotta protect your website. This is YOUR baby, not a vehicle for IGNUT (not ignorant, but IGNUT) people to rant and rave and attack your regular readers. Those IGNUT posters and nuts and we can't have them destroying something you've worked so hard to build up!
