Calling all Trolls

Come my friends, let me whisper sweet words of love to you, that your souls may be edified and your bowels comforted.
To get right to the point: I have about as much respect for your freedom of speech as I do for your thoughts. I delete. Florence deletes. We like it.
I'll admit, I do sometimes feel as though I am torn between two very tasty options:
1. Let my fine friends defend me and mine.
2. Send your two cents careening into the happy abyss of Nice Try.
I go with the latter because I value the time of others: my friends, who may bother to read your comments, or worse yet, take the time to crush you into fine powder with theirs, AND! AND! even the precious minutes of your challenged lives mean something to me. I wouldn't want you to waste those or your scattered spurts of genius on things which will only suffer the fate of option 2.
I don't like you much, but Jesus does love you, and you too can be happy.

Amen! We've got a world to reach, & it'd be a sad thing to get caught up in throwing insults back & forth at each other instead (& even if you're not one of those aiming to "reach the world," you probably have much more important things to do w/ your time)!

I just want to say to those who hv been civil, courteous & level-headed in their comments (whether in the Family or not), I respect your way of handling things.

When you make a point without being spiteful & cutting others down, no matter who those "others" are, you show true depth of character, & I'm sure I'm not the only one who holds that in high regard.

Good work
Everyone has a right to keep their blog clean from spammers.
Your domain is literally your domain ..I respect that.

I like you, Lilia!!! :D
I have such a phobia of deletion in real life. Probably comes from years and years of abuse by my perverse computers that decide to shut down and blow up right when I'm almost finished "that novel" or "that layout".
So I like to delete random things to get back at the big computer world.
DELETE DELETE DELETE DELETE!!! YAY! Oh it gives me so much joy!

Reading this made me want to post a completely, meaningless, absolutely senseless comment that would waste everyone's time including the time it would take you to delete this comment... but WAIT! before you delete, consider how much time it will take you to have your browser reload the webpage AFTER you hit delete, as compared to the amount of time it would take you to simply ignore this comment in the hopes that I'll never come back to post utterly meaningless and banal retardicity... speaking of which, if you need instructions on how to use retardocide to get rid of retarded, banal, and uttterly meaningless comments, you'll find this really handy DELETE button somewhere on your control panel... I wouldn't know, I don't have a blog yet... but you might think about using that... if you really want to take the extra time to do so, instead of ignoring this post and using it as a prime example of what you SHOULD use the delete button for and not just use the delete button for totally random things, because if no one knows what constitutes a meaningless, load of banal BS, then you'll have many confused commenters who will have no idea what NOT to do, and will then be victims of your tyrannical, harsh, uncaring, immoral deletion-on-sight foreign policy... I mean pity the poor Mexican-like trolls just trying to ease their daily drudgery by sneaking across the Rio Grande of your comment section only to find themselves trapped between cages of electrified razor wire, and faced with vicious border guards (not to imply that the two of you are vicious, and likewise not to imply that either of you are not vicious inhumane, dictatorial, troll-comment deleters) who are determined to shoot them and then kill them and leave their cold, dead bodies on the hard concrete floor of your regime-ical prison... weep for the trolls... have you no pity... no love... NO? Oh well. I was right. You must be tyrannical, despotical, dictatorial dictators of this poor oppressed, freedom-of-speech-less blog... I'm calling the UN...

Wow, do you have any idea how much time I just spent creating this masterpiece-ful load of meaningless, banal trash. At least Jesus loves me.

Hey, that's actually pretty amusing!
We have a crazed hamster who has the burden to spice up our blog! Nice!

Actually we don't mind meaningless so much as we do the vulgar and the vile. The posts in question had less to do with banal and more to do with anal. If they had any relevance to reality, they could almost have been called offensive.

I wish I drew that.

Aahhaha, crazed really does sound like he's been running on a hamster wheel (not getting anywhere.) Good stuff, evidiently you weren't deemed vile enough to be deleted. Damn haha.
