COMMENT MODERATION HAS BEEN ENACTED ...

First I hinted, then I requested a small measure of self-control on the part of one named blogger. I didn't realize that asking someone to not post serially, two minutes apart on so many threads was an outrageous suggestion. The same thing was suggested about the sheer number of overall posts by said person.

 After nearly two hours of games, I'm enacting Comment Moderation out of necessity. I apologize to my other bloggers for this inconvenience.

And yes, I'm aware it will only drive this person into anonymity, but since he/she abhors it so much, I'll get a certain measure of satisfaction from the knowledge of that :D

Too bad one or 2 bad apples spoil it. But what a good solution!

Hope the "jazzy" moves quickly and she is on her way out.

You've had this moderation up before haven't you? It can't be that much of an inconvenience.

It's a bummer that we will have to wait for legit comments to be posted because SCATS has to weed through the junk of a troll. And an egotistical troll to boot. You think if Troll comes back as anonymous we'd be able to tell? There is a certain style and way of posting we might recognize, because it is so so so annoying. And if we don't recognize it, it means someone is practicing restraint and we don't have to be annoyed. Bad behavior = comments bye bye. Good behavior = comments posted. Win-Win!

To 3:32PM ~~ I think most people like seeing their post go up as soon as they write it. With Comment Moderation on, they are at my mercy ... and on my schedule.

SCATS said...

To 5:00PM ~~ Don't misunderstand me please. I never told this person to stop posting. I merely asked them to try to cut the volume back, especially with all the addendums made right after a comment gets posted.

And calling people Trolls and making fun of disabled people is "good behavior"? You have a screw loose.

Anonymous said...

I understand. But from her own comments she seems to think you wouldn't be able to tell if she serial posted as anonymous.

Actually, I believe you would NOT ban her comments even if she kept posting with her named moniker as long as she toned it down.

SCATS said...

To 5:07PM ~~ WHO was called a troll? What disabled person was subjected to ridicule?

I see no names mentioned anywhere on this thread.

SCATS said...

Since the person in question has so much time on their hands, I think I'll save up all the comments that are accumulating and post them on a special thread. Everyone will be able to read the progression from angry to juvenile to borderline insane regarding tone and content.

And if I get any more that are threatening, I'll report them to Blogspot & Google.

an online troll is someone who posts just see themselves post and enjoy the reaction of others, not to engage in true discussion. that is different from an ugly troll who lives under a bridge. so in this case the actions of the poster as like an online troll. no one is calling anyone ugly or gross.

SWEET!!!!! @5:23

SCATS said...

To 5:25PM ~~ I prefer the term "SNERT" but essentially, they are the same.

Now that her most favoritist blogger put up a new post, maybe you will catch a break!

Diane said...

Scats..if you're referring to ME..then you better be sure it is indeed ME and not someone else pretending to be me. My comments were only in response to others' comments (and posting them exclusively would be taking them out of context>>ever hear of that expression?)...and I have never threatened anyone.

SCATS said...

Diane ~~ " ... you better be sure ..."

OR WHAT??

" ... and I have never threatened anyone."

NOPE. NEVER !

Anonymous said...

Scats maybe you could get some of that IP spy-ware so you could be SURE (hehehe) that is is her. LMAO

SCATS said...

To 7:40PM ~~ Anyone who claims they are collecting IP addys via Blogspot, the host of Google's BLOGs, is missing some fries from their Happy Meal. Even more amusing is the person who claimed that they know my IP address just by posting comments on here. On top of that, I use AOL so the IP addy will be for the eastern half of the US, where their HQ is located ;)

SCATS, your blog is better than some of the new fall shows I'm betting. I need a water cooler to talk about this around.

SCATS said...

To LeRogueBlogger ~~ That's quite THE BLOG you've started! We're ALL going to need a water cooler to stand around with your contributions up for discussion!

ALOHA :)

LeRogueBlogger said...

Maybe I'LL be the water cooler. A flammable one, but one nonetheless.

SCATS said...

BLOG Administration is rejecting publication of nearly two dozen comments left tonight, mostly from a single, obvious poster. All are either argumentative about how I run this BLOG or otherwise inappropriate for name-calling, using an individual's name to make their point, etc.

THIS THREAD IS CLOSED.
