We Don't Ban Liberals Here
Ok, the question has now come up from outside and inside so, lacking anything else of import to blog about at this hour of the night, I might as well answer it:
We have only banned ONE person here in the two years or whatever we've been in existence, and that person was neither liberal nor conservative but simply a freak.
That's not to say we have not had considerable antagonists. We have MAJOR antagonists. They rip us to shreds five ways from Tuesday all the time day in and day out. We can deal with that.
Some of our favorite, blood-feud liberal visitors have been invited to blog here under our own amnesty program, in fact, and one of them very famously took us up on the offer and now has blanket privileges to post whatever he wants at the NVTH Blog.
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is, I daresay, one of the most interesting, yet completely liberal, people in the blogosphere. He thinks I am a total neanderthal. And he is not only NOT blocked but has admin access to this site.
Kevin is one of our less-than-blood-feud liberal friends who has full access and has also contributed excellent posts here, and is now one of our best friends in the blogosphere and beyond.
Zimzo, if you can believe it, was also offered full access. It was offered to others as well. So I think we have established we are not afraid of open dialogue.
The question is, why are all these guys not always posting here.
The answer is, because they have lives - not because we shut them out.
It takes a LOT of time to engage in a continuing discussion in the comments. It is a big time investment to write all the stuff. It's along the lines of an academic debate, and we do not offer Continuing Education Units.
We are pleased when our liberal commentors weigh in here, but when they don't we fully understand they have other things to do.
That's all there is to it. No conspiracies.
