A quiet word to the trolls

Posted on

Trolls have been out in force on the blog over the last week or so. Only a few of them, but they have been persistent,so let me offer a quiet explanation to those who have seen a number of their comments deleted.

If you came to my front door and when I opened it you yelled abuse at me do you honestly think I'd invite you in for a chat?

And do you honestly think that if you behaved like that I could trust you to not abuse my other guests?

I hope you have the sense to realise that I would turn you away the first time and if you called again that I would definitely not answer, however many times you appeared (and some if you do it several times a day). That's what I also do on the blog.

That's not called censorship. That's called common sense.
