I love how this site has brought together some of the best minds and commenters on various issues that we hold near and dear to our lives and our community. Okedyulabeluu has some of the best commenters around, but sometimes it can be a real pain to manage. So starting today, I'm taking out the delete/ban hammer and getting strict.
I have already posted before on how not to get banned or get your comment deleted, and while those rules still apply, recent overall comment quality has deteriorated enough that I'm going to start instituting a stricter set of rules that, when broken, will get you banned immediately.
Now as I said, it has reached the point where I dread putting up a new post only to see it hijacked by commenters who can't seem to avoid mentioning in their comments; nautilus city, Felix, Lord Morris Davidson, Peter Moran, Jackson Ngiraingas, Koshiba, Tommy, Nakamura, etc. The discussion has turned toxic that it is no longer so much about ideas but about who can pack more venom in his or her comments. I would urge strongly that anyone who wants to carry such kind of conversation would be better off opening their own blog to avoid getting banned from commenting on this site.
It may seem harsh, but the aim is to make a better Okedyulabeluu for all of us, and this is a goal I'm very serious about. So, without further ado, you will be banned from commenting on Okedyulabeluu if you turned any post into a debate about natutilus city or anybody who is mentioned above irregardless of whether you're a supporter of the project or not.
Kom kmal mesaul.
