Primarily because sometimes the spam filter breaks down and I had to delete 50 pieces of Spam from the moderation queue on Friday. Partly because I don’t really value everyone’s opinions equally. Seriously. It’s nice to pay lip service to the idea that everyone’s dissenting opinions are valid and… whatever, but they aren’t. Why am I spending my time and bandwidth giving people I literally think _nothing of_ a platform for their rantings? Why should I expect that I can go to someone else’s blog and say _literally anything_ and deserve to be heard? More importantly, why does anyone want to be a part of a forum where their opinions are given equal weight and access to those of racists, misogynists, misandrists, homophobes, or just the chronically, painfully stupid? Is it masochism?
My blog is not “The Government,” neither is anyone else’s (to my knowledge), no one is censoring you. Start a blog with your ridiculous dissenting opinions. They’re free, and you can spout off all of the hateful stupid bullshit you want. America!
A public service announcement, for those that they now need to unsubscribe or otherwise stop reading because my politics disagree with theirs.
