I didn’t want to have to do this. I wanted anyone and everyone who so wanted to do so to be able to come and post a comment here and have it appear on the blog immediately.
Unfortunately, thanks to Mike Glyer of File 770, that can no longer be the case.
Mike has been banned from commenting here. His name and e-mail address are blocked. But, instead of taking the hint and ignoring several requests to just go away and stew in that sewer of his, he decided to impersonate someone so he could sneak in a rude remark on this blog.
I have screenshots to prove what he did. I will not post them publically as the information on them could aid in a potential doxxing attempt. I have no use for anyone who engages in doxxing or swatting (or threatening physical violence at a con if a certain invited guest attends). But I have the proof – in case he tries to deny what he did – and several others have seen it too.
The only way to ensure this doesn’t happen again is to put every comment into moderation until I have a chance to see where it is coming from.
I’m sorry. I wish there was some other way but, according to my host provider, this is the only option.
Thanks a lot, Mike. /sarc
