Something flew past my little radar on Spinks blog, which it’s a very interesting post. The topic about sexism is near and dear to my heart, since feminists tend to shun me like the black plague. The thing that caught my eye is the call to moderate Spinks makes. I just want to toss this up, I don’t care how crude a statement is, or crass. I would never delete a comment, even when that statement is against me.
I once had an angry reader, who was a role player and didn’t like my stance on the topic. He did some research on me, found out I was still living with my mother. He made a comment to the fact I was a loser for such. What he didn’t know is I moved back in with my handicapped mother to take care of my stepfather who had a stroke. I only removed the comment because the author of the comment asked me to.
Why do I have such a liberal policy on my blog, because I believe in the freedom of speech. I love this country, and one of our greatest freedoms is the freedom of speech, even though I don’t agree with what you say, I believe you have the freedom to say it, to take away that right on my blog…would make me more of a hypocrite then I already am, even I have limits to my hypocrisy. Now that’s a personal choice on my blog, and if you make a stupid comment, be prepared to made fun of and ridiculed.
I think me and Spinks will just have to agree to disagree about what this great thing we call an internet is about, I believe it’s a place of freedom, and anarchy…and she thinks it’s a place that needs to be more controlled, and limited.
