This is my blog. It is my thoughts, my links, and my work.
I have the right to do anything I want on this blog.
Generally speaking, I leave all the comments up with the exception of comment spam and blatantly offensive stuff.
But tonite, I deleted a comment from a person who posted a comment with a misleading name.
They used the name of a company that was mentioned on my blog. A company that I respect. They insinuated that they were from that company and the comment represented the thoughts of that company. The CEO of that company asked that I take it down and I did.
If you want to leave a critical comment, that’s fine.
if you don’t like something I say, please say so.
But don’t hide behind some other company, person, or name. Do it in your own name or some consistent handle. I may not like what Hector has to say, but he’s consistent and he’s not hiding behind any fake name. I respect what he has to say even though I don’t agree with it.
So, here is an addition to my comment policy.
If you make a comment and sign it with a blatently false attribution, its coming down, regardless of the comment. That’s lame stuff that has no place on my blog.
