President Obama arrives for a dinner hosted by President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in Deauville
Hello people, before I say a hearty goodnight, just a word – or several!
Since this blog started up, I’ve only ‘banned’ a single person – if you don’t count the troubled teabagger and professional leftie visitors who automatically end up in the junk folder, along with all those nice people trying to promote willy-growth products. There’s a link there, but I’ll behave.
Other than teabaggers, professional lefties and willy-growth promoters, I don’t want to ban anyone, I never, ever dreamt of being a ‘mod’ when I was growing up. Honest. The person in question, though, launched one too many attacks on fellow visitors to this blog, before sending me a parting message that focused largely on the hue of the President’s skin. Strange.
As you all know, this blog is proudly pro-President Obama – as I always say, there are countless other sites to visit if you want to spew bile all over him, or his supporters. But this place is designed to be a refuge from all that hate, and will always remain so.
All I ask is that people who comment here show respect for each other – and almost everyone of you does. But, please, no more “lighten up” comments (deleted) in response to sincere people who express from-the-heart opinions about an issue, just respectfully argue things out without abusing each other. Please?
Much as I hate doing it, I will ban people who bring hostility and nastiness to this place. I almost dished out a second ban today, but took a deep breath – we’ll see. Remember, this is a hate-free zone ;-)
Thanks everyone, see you tomorrow.
