So You Want To Be Anonymous?

This blog has been running for 9 years from 2011, and over the years readers from many walks of life and from all over North America have posted their comments. After our years with traveling the blog has seen many postings not related to travel topics. The political situation in the US has had a major impact on my postings. This has resulted in that some readers have left the blog while others have joined in. While I realize and respect that some readers would not want to leave comments on political topics on a publicly accessible blog, others have expressed their opinions, whether they were pro or contra.

As the owner and admin of this blog I expect every comment to reflect an opinion based on logical facts and remain civil in its language and being posted under a name.

Unfortunately, most of the wildest and rudest comments I have received, were under "anonymous". Consequently, they were deleted. Once in a while, I have received otherwise qualifying comments under "anonymous" and they have been published.

However, most of the anonymous comments were either spam comments or falling under the category mentioned above.

If you like to have your comment published, then get yourself a Google ID with your name.  

Yet, I reserve the right to not publish a comment even under your name, if it contains plain insults or re-hashed right-wing propaganda and lies. There is enough of that at Fox News & Co. and it will not be tolerated on this blog. 

I will also encourage everyone to leave this blog if you don't agree with my position, which is based on free social -democratic principles. 

With that being said, I still hope all the others will continue to follow my mixture of entertainment and political points of view.

Stay safe and 6ft away from other people. It's how we can defeat the virus and return to normalcy as quickly as possible.

And if you missed the NY-Governor's press conferance, here is a link. (hope it's working)

  2. Well said. In my particular case, the only reason I 'leave' a blog, is usually due to have a bunch of other stuff to do, and I don't get around to reading all the blogs I follow. I used to get anonymous comments (like, years ago) and after the whole introduction of the Google ID thing, it fell right off. Once in a while I get some stupid thing that has absolutely nothing to do with anything except that person's desire to have some sort of spam presence, but other than that, nada.
    Oh, and by the way, now even Fox news is starting to see that the "party line" that they've been following all these years is starting to become untenable. It's fun to watch the self destruction. Carry on.

  3. We totally agree with what you are saying. It is your Blog and you can write whatever you wish to do.
    Too many of those who post belligerent commenters hide under the guise of being Anonymous. We've had a few ourselves that have had the same treatment as Spam. Delete!
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
