The necessity of blocking users.

I have sadly taken the decision to block some users. It is unlike me as I do enjoy a good discussion on all levels, but you cannot have any discussion with people when they are on the crazy level of seeing racism in every comment.

It rather stifles the freedom of speech especially when I discuss a person or country, and within minutes the usual comments of racist, xenophobe, prejudice comes in and those are the polite ones.

As I repeatedly tell those commenting that their need to fit everything in their virtual signalling offended boxes does not bother me one jot. As a plus middle aged woman I don’t care what someone who is virtual signalling thinks of me, as I am never rude, defend religion when necessary, and certainly defend the underdogs in this world and I never bring up their colour….yet they do all the time.

It seems the only racists are the ones chucking the words about so easily….you only have to read my posts that I care deeply for people from all areas, but will call out those who are in public politics and public life….because regardless of who and what they are.

I am getting terribly bored of the name calling and that was why I took the decision to block some as they were comments that would never be allowed on my site as they are offensive, and my readers don’t need to read their narrow minded bigotry, and because of running so many sites it takes me away from the valuable time of answering comments who have a point worth discussing.

Maybe if instead of being permanently offended they use the manners their parents installed in them to comment, then maybe people will listen and there would not be the mess we find ourselves in, but until then I have no interest in what they have to say.

  1. 🤔 I am sorry to learn that people were disrespectful to you via your blog’s comments section.

    I would like to recommend the creation of a “Commenting Policy” page; it would let commenters know what is expected of them and if that does not work, you will have to go a step further by manually approving all of your comments.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day!

    1. That is a brilliant idea thank you. It didn’t upset me the names I was called but the language was really too much. You can have a great debate without the use of offensive language. Thank you again for this.

    1. I am not blocking debate but rather those who use offensive language as readers do not need to read it. The language on some has been outrageous and nobody should have to read it.

    1. Hi Deb, I am fine thank you and have been called worse when in the Army, but some people are genuinely offended by allowing bad language. There is no need for it… If people disagree with me then great as it opens up a conversation and I am all for that, as politics is a powerful force and everyone thinks differently, and I will always post those…as that is what makes the world go round.

  2. I understand the annoyance Sue but on the Internet you are going to get this if you post anything controversial unfortunately.

    1. Hello Simon, I do understand that trust me as the first one shocked me but then after that I thought…do you know what I am doing me and the rest of the blogging world a dis-service by allowing it because it has bad language in it. I can and do welcome anyone disagreeing with me and will always respond even if they pick apart everything I say but that is the whole point of me being on here. It is controversial but I was hoping that adults being adults we could discuss it on an adult basis. Seems some can’t but it won’t stop me as I will just keep deleting those that really should not see the light of day.
