This blog should contain Adult Content.
Not "adult content" like watching scrambled porn on cable TV...but content written by adults acting like adults.
Tex has a good message. The "lying cowardly kingpins" have ruined the opportunity to build a profitable Quixtar business for their downline.
Tex's desire to be heard on "credible" blogs such as the Quixtar corporate-sponsored blogs, instead of the "critic" blogs is also admirable. But...Tex could make THIS blog just as credible.
The problem is Tex doesn't want to "police" this blog. So the responsibility falls to me. And my problem is that the message is getting lost every time I have to delete a comment that contains a valid point but is then punctuated by an insult so personal that I can't in good conscience let it stay published.
Don't get me wrong...I love a good "blog fight" as much as anyone. Insults can spice up a good argument. It rattles some opponents to the point they concede the debate by bowing out.
But, how do I decide what constitutes an acceptable insult?
I don't want Tex's Blog to be reduced to "doo-doo head" and "you have cooties" type insults. I do want(and I think Tex wants, too) Tex to be able to say what is on his mind and Tex's critics and supporters to counter Tex's statements.
Therefore, I'm gonna let the fur fly with a few exceptions.
Any comment with an F-bomb wil be deleted.
Any comment containing racist remarks will be deleted.
Any personal attack with reference to genitalia will be deleted.
Any personal attack with sexual reference or preference will be deleted.
If a comment is deleted, any response to the comment will also be deleted.
What do you think? Good? Bad?
Should I just delete the blog? Turn off comments and just archive the blog?
