The other day, a state lawmaker ask me about screening of comments as this person had a constituent who felt their slams against one candidate didn't make it through the filter.
I delete comments every day. Usually its due to vulgarity, undo intrusions into personal relationships, egregious cheap shots, or outright libel. Most do make it through.
I do offer additional protection to my friends but also try to let through some critical comments on everyone, including yours truly.
It's tough with some readers who elicit constant response, but yes Danny, I delete a lot of the bile directed at you. But I let some through to keep it interesting.
So if you want to comment, keep it somewhat civil and avoid gratuitous personal invective and we will all get along.
