This is a letter to just one person who posts by the name "Frequent Poster."
Dear Frequent Poster,
You are the first and only person whose comments I have deleted. The first from hundreds of comments and thousands of readers. I suppose it is a coming-of-age experience for a blogger to have to delete a comment. But it is unfortunate.
You obviously have deep feelings about police issues. And I respect the depth of those feelings. But I do not like the style in which you express your feelings nor the certainty in which you believe you are sole possessor of the truth.
You wrote in one comment I deleted that I have been "dishonest and disrespectful to [you]." So please do not subject yourself to this disrespect. The problem could very well be me and not you. But still, it is my blog (you could always start your own).
Nobody pays me to write this. So when keeping this blog is more trouble than it's worth, I will stop. And you are making this experience much less fun for me.
I am kindly asking you to stop commenting to my posts. Commenting anonymously does not change the fact you are still commenting. I wish you would stop.
I am kindly asking you to stop reading my blog.
My next step would be to disallow anonymous comments and/or moderate all comments. I do now wish to do this. I am kindly asking you to do the honorable thing and respect my wishes and go away.
