Deletions

I've been deleting.

Don't panic, it's nothing from a county computer. (See, even us fans of the Office have a little sense of humor).

But there were some posts today that I have elected to delete. It's my blog, and it's my decision. Go ahead and blast me if you want, but there are certain things I won't tolerate on my blog.

I disagree with plenty of the messages that are posted here, but there are some that cross the line into an idiocy that I'm not going to give a forum to. I couple of days ago, I deleted a guy who wanted to write about muslims. Today, I'm deleting a couple of e-mails (from the same person, I might add) that are trying to start a rumor campaign that have nothing to do with what we are talking about.

It's not happening on this web site, folks. Not if I can help it.

There are posters on the Chronicle's website that have more than an ample opportunity to post whatever the hell they want to. I encourage them to stay on that website. Really, you are reaching a broader audience, and you are probably more at home there.

I think you can read the posts and clearly see that I don't delete messages that disagree with me (didn't mean for that to rhyme). I'm just not going to foster chicken-shit rumors here.

I believe that the poster that I have had to delete is a person who regularly posts on the Chronicle website as "PeaceMD". I'm not going to name nor blast her personally on this website. I knew her during my time at the Office, and I have nothing bad to personally say about her.

If it is PeaceMD, I would respectfully ask her not to post the types of things on this website that have been on today. I was always respectful of you, and I would request the same of you.

Are you deleting your posts, or just comments?

Just the comments. I've had to delete a total of four since I've been running this. I don't like to do it, but there is just some stuff that is a little too close to looking like the Chronicle website.
