So after 4 years and a million visitors...

...there'll be a few changes here at the Halls.

As regular readers may have noticed of late, there has been an exponential increase in troll activity. It's something that anyone who blogs has to deal with... part of the job description if you will... but I think it's time to implement comment moderation.

I came to this decision reluctantly... and only after running some of the recent erratic... and increasingly pornographic commentary past a psychologist friend.

This shouldn't really effect regular readers & commenters... the 5 to 6 thousand folks who visit here weekly.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. A special thanks to all the folks who wrote to share their thoughts about the "Nonny" situation.

I look forward to the next 4 years.


POSTSCRIPT: Seven, er... one stages... of troll grief

So it's been a while since I initiated comment moderation and... not surprisingly... Nonny hasn't given up the ghost. Every night, without fail, he shows up to breathlessly share his innermost desires.

These, unfortunately... consist largely of nonsensical suggestions involving sexual relations with various members of the animal kingdom, or homicidal fantasies...

Apparently, comment moderation has been a freeing experience for Nonny as well...

Yup... an endless supply of postcards from the compassionate, intellectual left.

And, hey... look who showed up yet again...

...it's the same despicable asshole who pissed all over a dead Canadian soldier's mother...
cynic the twitLive and don't learn... the world is full of them. Sigh.
