About the trolls

There’s something of a troll problem in the comment discussions.    I think the BigGest offender has now finally been convinced to find another venue, but there will be more in the future who are bent on being disruptive.  

Short of moderating all comments before they’re published (meaning it may be hours before they become visible), the options are a bit limited in what we can do.  We have a few options but some trolls are persistent at getting around the obstacles.

One thing I wanted to make clear is that there is no opinion filter.  The whole spectrum of opinion is welcome here – and especially when commenters are representing a minority view (strongly religious, for example) I feel obligated to give them the benefit of the doubt.  What I am saying is, unpopular opinions are as welcome as popular opinions, but all comments must be somewhat civil. Commenters who are only disruptive will be asked to find a new venue. This last trouble-maker was ejected because he was trying to ruin the peace (and succeeding), not because he was religious.  Many people asking for his removal were in fact Christians who felt he was giving Christians a bad name with his ranting.

The question is what to do with the comments left behind.  It was argued that we should leave them in place to avoid any precedent of deleting comments.  This makes sense to me.

For those looking for a more structured discussion forum, the FSM Forums are available and run a much tighter ship.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions about the troll and for your patience.

    Hello friends actually i will like to really take out time to comment about a testimony that took place in my life on how God directed me to a real loan lender who have transformed my life from grass to grace, from being poor to a rich woman who can now boast of a healthy and wealthy life without stress or any financial difficulties. After so many months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was scammed the sum of about $8,000 i became so desperate in getting a loan from a legit loan lender online who will not add to my pains,then i decided to contact a friend of mine who recently got a loan online, we discussed about the issue and to our conclusion she told me about a man called Mr Andy Jackson who is the CEO Andy Jackson LOAN COMPANY So i applied for a loan sum of ($75,000.00) with low interest rate so the loan was approved easily without stress and all the preparations where made concerning the loan transfer and in less than four(48) HOURS the loan was deposited into my bank account i thought it was a joke until i received a call from my bank that my account have been credited with $75,000.00 i became so happy that finally god have answered my prayers by directing me to a real loan lender who was able to grant my heart desires. big thanks to Mr Andy for making life reasonable for me, i am advising everybody who is interested in getting a loan to kindly contact him via email (andy.jackson130@yahoo.com) that was how i got my loan and i was able to pay off my bills.Thanks as you took out time to read about my success story and i pray god will also do his will in your life
