This is why we can't have nice things....

So, I deleted a comment by a blog visitor that I didn't like. Which, naturally, prompted that visitor to comment again on an unrelated post, calling me a plethora of hashtag insults, one of which being a "hypocrite". Now, I have to say, ten points to Gryffindor for being tenacious. You go, friend. I like your sass. But five points from Gryffindor for being sort of weird and stalkerish.

(Although I have to say, having my first stalker is sort of flattering. What's the protocol for this? Do you buy them a cheese platter? Send them a card? Put out food and water at night time for them? I don't know what to do with one.)

That light of the new developments on the Brooke Moss blog, here are the new rules: I will write what I want, how I want, when I want, and then (and here's where it gets exciting) I will post it.

Visitors to my blog are cordially invited to do the following: You may read my blog posts, either enjoy them or not (it's your choice--see? Freedom!) and then you may comment on them as you see fit. Because, as my new friend so kindly pointed out: I believe in free speech. Though I have to add that if something I write bothers someone that much, you can always just.....not come to my blog again. That option is always on the table.

However, I will use my discretion as to what comments will stay, and which comments will go. As it is my blog, I also have the right to delete comments as I see fit. Visitors have every right in the world to comment as they wish, and as the author of this blog I have to read said comments. But that doesn't mean that I am legally required to keep the comments up. It being my blog, I am allowed to delete as I see fit. Just as visitors are allowed to say it, I'm allowed to delete it.

(This freedom thing is COOL.)

Sadly, if we keep having a problem with my discretion, or the overuse of insulting hashtags, I will be forced to close all comments on all my posts henceforth. Which is no fun for anyone, and kind of a bummer.


Even a Loki gif can't make this fun.
