Opinions are fine, raving is sometimes fine ... what I'd term 'hate speech' is not. As I wrote under FAQ:
Why did you delete the comment I left?
I don't like rude or mean anonymous comments, so I sometimes delete them. This blog is an extension of my life, and in a sense I'm allowing you into my home. If it's something you wouldn't say face to face to someone over dinner, don't write it.
Trolls are a minor irritation of life, but since I travel so much I don't want one to take over this blog.
Someone calling himself 'theologyarchaeology' - he also uses the handles 'kinship' or 'Dr David Tee' - leaves comments on many blogs covering religion. None of his comments make much sense to me, and I don't appreciate his dislike of homosexuals and others not following his religion (I'm not quite sure what it is). I've been as clear as I can be that I don't want his comments here, as have several other real scholars with blogs. His reaction? Insults - he's accused Joel L. Watts of not being Christian ...
I'm not Christian, but Mr Troll seems to think I should live my life according to his rather dubious interpretation of Christian doctrine. I suspect he's also the same twat I blocked on Twitter for constantly trying to 'convert' me.
So one man spoils it for everyone ... c'est la vie, and boy must his be a sad one.
