The Eclectic One

…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Seems i’m getting rather a lot of comments recently that never make it past the filter.

All of these deleted comments are of the variety of “Obama is a Muslim,”  “Obama voted to let babies die,” or similar blatantly untrue claims.

You can say pretty much anything you want here within reason. What you cannot say are things that would amount to libel if applied to a private person. There are places on the web for such nonsense, this isn’t one of them.

I haven’t run stories about Palin’s youngest son for a similar reason. I consider it to be most likely false.

Call Obama an extremist, call him an abortion apologist, call him a socialist, or say he’s got no experience if you want. But there is a limit. If you’re too daft to grasp what that limit might be given the clearly stated policies on the About page, don’t be surpirsed when I delete the comment.
