I don’t like to delete comments….

But someone was posting comment after comment after comment, each one a nasty attack. Only the second time I’ve ever had to do it, and I hope I don’t have to do it again.

Well, Richard, I didn’t see this person’s comments, if the stupid asshole comes back, just put a blocker on him (her?). If s/he tries getting around it by using different screennames, you’ll know you’re dealing with a nutcase and should respond accordingly. People who can’t let go of an argument have maturity issues (yes, I’ve been through that phase myself, and have dealt with plenty of my own obsessive fuckheads while writing humor elsewhere online).

Good luck in keeping it civil and to-the-point. But I don’t think “civil” has to mean the same thing as “pristine language.” Feel free to use the logos-smackdown as needed. Some of us will cheer.

George, it’s not a matter of me being nasty. You posted a series of messages attacking the same person over and over again with words like “loser.” That’s not sharing an opinion or commenting, it’s abuse. As to “self-centered essays,” I hate to tell you, but that’s what many (most?) blogs are. No one is forcing you to read them, it is your choice.

Kevin, thanks for the advice, which I am about to implement.

” No one is forcing you to read them, it is your choice. yeah, you are right, No one is forcing you to come to asia, it is your choice, if you come to asia, you have to respect whatever is here, not just complaining everything like a widow who just lost her husband supporting her life”m try to be man!!!! not like a loser, Kevin and Richard, both of you are losers!

Kevin and Richard, the best way proving bot of you not losers is going back to your own country, and never come to asia or other countries begging for life! losers!

George,

I’m hoping you’re a youngster since your mental age (as judged by your comments) appears to be about 9.

Frankly, you’re an embarassment.

Good luck as you proceed through life with apparent delusions of adequacy.

george, I’ll leave your posts intact; they speak for themselves.

I’m flattered that even though you despise my site you still feel you have to come back again and again. My site traffic this week is the highest it’s been since I left China, and you helped! Much appreciated.
