Why I moderate comments

Nearly all who submit comments about the posts on this web site are reasonably civil in tone. Yet some provide links to articles and web sites that I am offended by, make personal attacks, or submit vile comments. Someone claiming to be named ‘Ben Brodsky’ submitted the following unedited comment after I would not let the other comments he recently submitted appear:

these comments are censored, so what u read isnt true… so i guess no one will read this but the scumbag monitor who should have been in the towers that faithful day

From that, I think you get a sense of what ‘Ben Brodsky’ submits as comments and why I moderate the comments submitted to this site.

    Mr. Brodsky is an ongoing pest all over the internet. I’ve found a couple of great pictures created by those who he’s attempted to fight with… The general vibe of the entire facebook group is that everyone hates the guy.

    I am a retired police officer from the DC area and I am appalled at the comments left by the clown in your post. Unfortunately, there are many idiots in this country who do not understand the battle we are in. Columbia University is a prime example.

    Keep up the good work. I enjoy your site.

    I would just like to give you a big THANK YOU for your moderation of comments. The above “Ben” sounds like a complete lunatic who forgot to take his meds, probably a troofer too. There are some real sickos out there and I like to have a few places to go where I don’t have to “see” them, and can just enjoy the truth being spoken.
