Comment moderation has been temporarily turned on
I really didn't, but an anonymous commenter left me little choice.
Unfortunately, in response to my post revealing that I'd been punked (as Ginger put it) by J. B. Handley, an anonymous commenter, apparently unhappy that I had revealed J. B.'s little deception, started flooding this blog with comments that no blogger could permit, because they bordered on the kind of cyberstalking that I haven't seen since Usenet. So, sad to say, comment moderation has been temporarily turned on, meaning that, for now, comments will have to be approved by me before they appear. I'm sorry about this, everyone. Hopefully I won't need to leave moderation turned on for very long.
Please don't let moderation stop you, though. As you can see, I didn't delete Mr. Best's very hostile comment. I'll probably even approve comments by J. B. himself if he happens to show up to justify his actions, assuming he doesn't pull the same fast one the anonymous commenter did. (Anonymous comments will still be OK.) I haven't decided yet whether I will announce it in a separate post when I decide to turn moderation off again, because such an announcement might be noted and draw these nasties back.
