Saturday, 26 January 2002 : "Comments disclaimer"Precautionary, pre-emptive heads-up on the Comments feature: I've added a note to the comments-posting form:
Note: I am extremely loath to ever actually do so, but IIn some ways, this should go without saying, but the first time I remove a comment (if it ever happens, which I'm hoping it won't), someone (who was probably anonymous in the first place) would pitch a fit and say it was censorship, oppression, etc.
Only governments can censor; everybody else is a private actor when it comes to their own web space. And web space is not hard to come by to post one's views elsewhere using any language one chooses, so there is zero obligation on my part to provide space at my own expense for everything anyone might ever say.
That said, I don't expect to ever have to delete a post. I'm not that easily offended and I don't want people thinking they have to walk on eggshells; I will never be in a hurry to pull this trigger. I just wanted this to be explicitly stated in case it ever does come up.
Please speak your minds freely. Seriously.
