A Decision & an Explanation

It is with a modicum of sadness that I have decided that I will no longer allow anonymous posts here at my blog. Someone who is a problem in my life has been leaving comments here that are meant to upset me (How do I know this -- my cute lil' counter told me -- not specifically but it doesn't take a Ph.D. to figure out.)

Soooooooo despite, in most cases, my not caring who posts a comment or what they say, I'm just making myself comfortable. I believe in what Voltaire allegedly said: "I may not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it." On the other hand, if you don't want to let me know you were here, I'm sorry. I love meeting new friends here and seeing old ones pop by to say hello. As soon as I figure out how to disallow anonymous postings in my settings I will do so -- Blogger help seems to be pretty helpless on this one. And if any of y'all know how to perform this task, please let me know & explain it as simply as possible. A techie, I'm not.

In case anyone was offended by my "Random Thoughts -- Cranky & Otherwise" post, please accept my apology. My point is that government is becoming overly intrusive in all of our lives and I, perhaps, used an outrageous example to illustrate it. I do, however, stand by my basic premise that morality and personal choices (including bad habits) cannot be legislated effectively. Watch this space for my thoughts on the size 0 models.

With that said, I'm off for an overdue visit to Kay's Neighborhood (i.e., my links)! I'll see y'all soon!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. It is unfortunate there are sickos around every dark corner just waiting to cause trouble. You cannot offend me ... unless I allow you to do so. Even a personal attack won't offend me. Piss me off perhaps, but not offend. Some have thinner skins and I've always thought it because of their own lack of self-confidence.

    Do what you have to do to keep the buggers at bay.

  2. I'm sorry you have to come to this Kay. I also know it's necessary to keep these kind of comments from driving you friggin' nuts. I think we all understand where you're coming from.


I love your comments!!! If you wish to post as Anonymous, please leave a name in your comment otherwise your comment will not appear.
