I started the General Election 2010 site with lofty goals, I didn’t want to moderate any comments (unless it was SPAM), didn’t want to curtail free speech, wanted to be as democratic as possible, but a small number of commenter’s are ruining the site.
This is a message for Terence and anyone else whose only reason for commenting is to promote the party they support without adding anything to the discussions.
Today I check the new comments and see Sarah was busy last night, Sarah posted 6 well thought out comments adding value to the discussions in a non party politics way (I still don’t know who she plans to vote for after about 80 comments).
Right after those helpful thought provoking comments I find 7 comments from Terence ranging from:
“has to be bnp 4 me” : (deleted)
“Simon is that simple by any chance!!LOL vote BNP no hurt intended just funning!!” : (deleted)
“the lib/lab/con are masters of lies deceit spin and twist!time to upset the apple cart time for change get rid of the Stalinist vote BNP” : this is on a comment about whether this poll is being manipulated.
And 4 other utterly pointless comments that add nothing to the discussions and if anyone does respond to those comments from Terence it will damage the debates further!
The only reason for making comments like these is to cause arguments and promote the BNP with out actually discussing anything relevant!
So Terence and anyone else who makes these types of pointless comments don’t be surprised if many of your comments are deleted or at best moved.
If you can not make an interesting comment worthy of debate please do not comment on my site, there are closing on 3,000 comments on this site and many are a waste of a visitors reading time. The vast majority of these pointless comments are about the BNP, if you want to discuss BNP policies, brilliant, lets discuss them in a reasonable manner.
I’ll be moving this comment and it’s replies under https://general-election-2010.co.uk/commenting-policy/ after it’s been here a few days and regular visitors and commenter’s have had a chance to read this comment (this poll page is the most popular page on the site).
