Note about Comments

Since July 12 I have been receiving a great number of comments every day. In the past 10 days only, the number of comments has skyrocketed to more than a 1000. So far I have had the time to go over all of them, within hours of being posted. I am, however, becoming a bit annoyed with the amount of racist (this goes both ways) statements. So much so that I have started doing what I would’ve never done – removing comments and banning the author(s). I will continue doing that so long as people don’t get the hint – that it’s OK to criticize, it’s OK to debate, but it’s NOT OK to be racist and insult a whole race/religion/group, even if the majority of that group is acting in a despicable manner and defending despicable acts. The bottom line is: if you can’t say what you have to say in a mature way (whether you’re defending Israel, Lebanon, or the devil himself), don’t say it at all. This is not a turf for airing pent-up, racist anger. I have been trying to keep away from moderating and removing comments as much as possible, but it seems some people are not getting the hint. Grow up, people! Or go play elsewhere!
