No More Anonymous Comments Until I Get Back

It is impossible for me to police comments properly during my stay in Rwanda, so I am stopping anonymous comments for the time being. I've just had to delete about half a dozen from the thread on the Ealing by election and if I had more time I'd have deleted a whole lot more.

No one should be put off commenting. Just create a Google account and you're away.

England needs another Air Chief Marshall Dowding not another Blair.

There is at least one labour mole that has penetrated deep inside CCHQ.

Is Ken Clarke busy next month?

Save string.

Into my heart a wind that kills
from yon far country blows.

This is a sock puppet/troll free zone.

Its like writing your name in virgin snow.

Into my heart a wind that kills

from yon far country blows

what are those Blue Remembered Hills

what Farms, what spires are those?


That is the Land of Lost Content

I see it shinning plain

the happy highways that I went

and shall not go again.


what Australian film featured the above, accompanied by Jenny Agutter swimming around in the nud?

I enjoyed the Ealing thread

Good move! Make it permanent. I get so pissed off with the mindless, crass, comments of so many Anons.

And what is the point, exactly? 742 people calling themselves 'Anonymous' really does not aid clarity in discussions. I'm surprised they even remember who they are or what they might have anonymously said. Maybe they just want to indulge themselves rather than debate.

I agree with chuck keep the anonymous block on

If Dave Cameron is the answer what the F*** was the question ?

I would like to see Michael Gove in the top job,he is so switched on and knows what people are about not Cameron is just a very bad spinner I can't even stand looking at him any longer.

Michael Gove if you are reading this with your Marmite toast- what has happened to the "Sensational Alex Harvey" ??

England hath need of thee
She is a fen.

There problems back here that need David Cameron's attention. A trip to Rwanda will not attract a single voter.

Whilst the cat's away the mice will play.

Remind me again who David Cameron is...

BaldockBaldrick said...

Good call. But are you going to allow offensive comments from google account members but you aren't going to allow non-offensive comments from anonymous people?

Bespoke said...

Remind me again who David Cameron is...

He was the future once.

Very little on news about Ealing.Mostly, first cash for h. and then floods. Not much damage to Conservatives or Cameron done in public mind.

ranter said...

Jenny Agutter in the nud - the film is 'WALKABOUT'.

Clarissa's Blog said...

What are you doing in Rwanda?

Iain,
Good on you - let's maintain a bit of exclusivity here.
No more of these cowardly anons.

Iain I think this is an important first step towards stopping a lot of this nonsense, though I'm not sure it will be enough. Without wishing to sound like a broken record, compare and contrast the comments from your Ealing thread with that on PB.com and see the difference in terms of constructive interaction. It makes you ask, what the hell do all these anonymous trolls actually seek to do?
