Well, that escalated quickly.
The policy here at Riverside Green regarding moderation has long been: we don’t do it. Having long been the subject of capricious and occasionally just plain incompetent moderation everywhere from VWVortex to Ferrarichat to TTAC itself, I have no interest in imposing a petty electronic tyranny on people just because they disagree with me.
There are a couple of readers here who absolutely despise me, Bark, or both of us collectively. Periodically they will erupt into festering boils of largely incoherent criticism, usually phrased several different ways. Often they will post several times in a row under different aliases in an attempt to break through the very basic auto-moderation protections used on the site. Sometimes, as was the case with this morning’s episode, they will try a variety of different IP addresses.
Ninety percent of the time, I will clean up the moderation queue, attempt to select the individual comment that seems to get their point across the best, and release that comment into the wild. Today, however, I’ve lost my patience with this stupidity. Between now and, oh, let’s pick a date, howsabout September 21 for obvious EWF-related reasons, I’m going to unceremoniously shitcan each and every ridiculous multiple comment or obvious attempt to self-aggrandize at the expense of this site and its readers. Alternately, I will edit the response to simply say, “I EAT COCK”, depending on my mood of the moment.
This policy does not apply to normal criticism, dissent, even hatred. It is reserved for the kind of deranged jerokff who is so deranged he feels compelled to type slightly different versions of the same thing six times because he can’t even master cut-and-paste.
If anybody has any problem with this, take it up with your therapist or your waifu.
