Mid-Week Reads: 'Tis the Season to be Snarky

I loved this post about comment moderation. I have to say, in the couple of years after I first started blogging (wow, I've been in this long!), a bad comment would ruin my day. I wouldn't delete it: you don't delete a comment because you don't agree with it! Or so I thought. Now if a comment creeps me out or rubs me up the wrong way, I don't hesitate to delete it. Go write expletives about me someplace else: I have no obligation to display your comment on my blog and try to politely answer it when you don't respect my space. I might put it up here for all of us to make fun of, though.
