I am reluctant to do this, but I have decided to enable comment moderation. I appreciate your comments, and for the most part the comments have been responsible and constructive.

Over at Councilor Chris Medlock's blog, however, it appears that agents of the Coalition for Reprehensible Government are using anonymity to post slanderous attacks on Chris, the same sort of canards that were used in the Tulsa Tribunal smear paper. I'm not going to wait until these cowbirds try to take over this nest before taking countermeasures.

This is my blog, and we play by my rules. If you want to engage in constructive criticism, that's fine, but you need to be willing to do so under your own name, and you need to supply me with a working e-mail address. Anonymous attacks will not be tolerated. If you don't like my rules, GYOB.

There is one way you can bypass comment moderation -- if you're registered with TypeKey, you can sign in, and post comments without moderation. All other comments will come through me, and I reserve the right to reject any comment for any reason.

It's a shame it has to come to this, but I saw some of the cruel and insensitve attacks over on Medlock's blog.

And to think we are tagged "troublemakers" just by showing up at City Council meetings.

I support the blocking of anonymous . Post like those on Mr. Medlocks site can drive others away from posting.

It was tough to bite my tongue when I was reading those but there is no use in responding to them.

I support the blocking of anonymous comments, and I applaud you saying constructive criticism is fine.
