I usually like to respect everyone’s opinions, which is why I encourage comments. I like to think I have an open mind and I made a decision that I wouldn’t censor any comments simply because I didn’t agree with what the poster said. Unfortunately, when someone has Asperger’s like I do, this black and white thinking can get in the way, and I don’t easily recognize when someone has crossed the line between disagreeing and personally attacking or cyber-bullying.
Recently, there have been some really hurtful comments that were posted to some of my blogs. I left them up because of my “no censorship” rule but others are telling me that THEY are being offended when they read them. So from here on, when someone posts ugly, hateful, offensive comments that don’t contribute anything of value to the topic, I will have to delete them because I want to have a site where people of any age can view the content without fear of being offended. (There may be kids visiting this site that just don’t need to see stuff like that.)
My apologies if anyone was offended by these anonymous comments that I should have deleted sooner. And to the people who posted them, you are welcome to disagree with me, but please do so in a civil way that won’t offend others. That way, others may take your opinions more seriously, and you won’t feel that you have to hide behind an anonymous name. Thank you.
