I hate to have to do this, but...

Due to a very vile, very personal attack made by an anonymous commenter (whose identity I suspect--gotta love the stats counter), I have had to enable comment moderation.

EDIT: Just to clarify: I have begun moderating comments not because my support of free speech has wavered. Indeed it has not. Anyone has the right to disagree with me and to make that disagreement known to me. However, I do not believe that anyone has the right to make abusive, libelous or harassing comments here--especially not under the guise of anonymity!

Comment moderation (for anonymous commenters) was on my blog automatically, it turns out, and I don't find I mind it very much. I approve every comment I get, provided it isn't spam.

Argh to jerks, though. You want I send my goons?

Heh. I don't know that goons are necessary just yet. We'll see how the comment moderation goes first. ; )
