Comment Policy

I have just done something that I have never done, and never wanted to do.

I deleted three comments from this blog.

I didn't delete them because they disagreed with me. The comments were rather inane, and the arguements were easy to deal with. The problem was that the email addresses that were used were invalid.

PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 554 delivery error: dd This user doesn't have a account ( [0] -
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 10): 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable

If you cannot be bothered to leave a valid email address, especially attached to a post that I have said I will only be responding to via email, you have nothing substantive to add to the conversation.

Thus, I have a new rule. If you leave an invalid email address, your comment will be deleted. I look at this as if you are lying to me, and I do not deal well with lying.

BTW -- if anyone wants to read the comments, let me know. I get all comments emailed to me, so I have them all in my gmail account. IF the offending posters want their comments back up, and can give me a valid email address, I will replace them.
