Let me note that the norm from here on out on my posts will be for the comments to be closed. If you don’t like that, or want to address something that I write, then you can get your own blog (they are actually available for free on the Internet) or contact the site through some other means. I find that most people are skimming the posts and then writing on something that has already been addressed or they are writing about something totally unrelated to the post. Most comments are far too long and far too unhelpful for me to continue to allow them.
That’s Chris Bolt, writing on that den of presubullshit, Choosing Hats. The reason I’ve reproduced it here is because it illustrates an increasingly common trait on Christian blogs – banning comment. For a group that seem to think they have all the answers and believe themselves to hold an unassailable position when it comes to ‘truth’, they sure do a lot of comment banning! Bob ‘Piltdown Superman’ Sorensen doesn’t allow comments on any of his risible anti-reality nonsense-fests, $ye heavily moderates his blog, Dustin Segers long ago stopped comments (after Dawson Bethrick made an absolute fool of him), and countless other no-marks ban any dissenting commentary from their Facebook groups and websites.
I guess if they simply ignore any inconvenient facts they think they’ll go away, it’s a shame for them that the world doesn’t work that way.
