Now I am not against the concept of ‘free speech’, and I think that the person who made the comment is entitled to his opinion, just as I am entitled to mine. That said, I thought that the ‘comments’ area of my blog was not to proper place for these views to be aired, and I have removed the comment that had been made.
One reason why this particular comment appeared is due to the fact that I do not have any mechanisms in place to vet comments before they are published. I used to have such a system … but removed it as I felt that it made it difficult for regular blog readers to make comments about what they had read. At present I do not plan to reinstate comment verification on my blog … but if the sort of non sequitur comment that was published yesterday begins to appear regularly, I may have to do so.
