Hey guys. Let’s talk. Have a seat? Comfy? Good.
Listen. It’s about the comments. Now most of you are super respectful, thoughtful cool peeps. I love you guys like play cousins. You’re awesome. But as the readership has grown over the last few months there’s been an increase of … what’s the right word … THE CRAZY on the blog. And when I mean crazy, I mean writing long, nonsensical screeds featuring folks who don’t know how to turn off the CAPS LOCK key.
This must stop.
So from now on, I don’t care who you are, if you start into a crazytown rant with caps lock abuse you’re getting disemvoweled. Two offenses and I just start deleting your comments without warning. Also, all personal attacks — that’s a deletion. And being an asshat — that’s a disemvoweling leading to eventual deletion.
Starting … now.
I don’t want to have to start pre-monitoring comments. (But I will if asshatery gets worse.) I honestly don’t want to turn into the comments dictator, but please, police yourselves. If you noticed that you’ve used ALL CAPS more than three times in one rant, perhaps you have a caps lock addiction. Maybe you should go to caps lock rehab. Go through caps lock withdrawal. Then come back here when you know how to type like a normal person. Do we understand each other? Thanks!
