Over the line

We need to calm down. Yes John was trying to bait me, and maybe he had a wild hare someplace low, but that's OK, Eli is a big Pooka. It's part of the reason for being partially anonymous, you don't have to take things so personally. On the other hand, I don't have much time right now, didn't post as detailed answers as I could have (should is another issue) and although worrying about this blowing up reacted too late and too weakly.

While the owner operator has little to no legal responsibility for comments, you have the responsibility of drawing lines, and making your own position clear to the anonymice and the not so. Eli has kept this blog wide open, he often puts comments that he thinks are better than anything he could ever write into posts, and will continue to do so, but he will pay more attention to pointing out when he thinks someone is over the line. FOS is another issue, we feature that.

Both here and elsewhere Eli has tried to be a stand up bunny. Mom Rabett says that he was always very trying. I'm not going to apologize to John that some of the mus don't like his position, and I ain't gonna apologize to the mus that John is currently setting out traps for them, that's between youse guys, but I will apologize to both that I let this get out of hand without intervening more strongly.

Now that we have all settled down, it is perhaps worthwhile giving examples of what ee cummings wrote

what's too far said he
where you are said she
using Mr. Martin Durkin, a thin skinned fellow, member of the Revolting Communist Party and guiding force behind England's Channel 4 Global Warming Swindle, who addressed a humble correspondent (again, we have our sources)
The BBC is now a force for bigotry and intolerance. Most of the temperature rise in the past 150 years happened before 1940. Most of the human CO2 happened in the latter part of the 20 century.
Closing with the salutary
Why have we not heard this in the hours and hours of shit programming on global warming shoved down our throats by the BBC?

Never mind an irresponsible bit of film-making. Go and fuck yourself.
When prodded to engage in discussion made a final appeal to honor
You're a big daft cock
De gustibus non est disputandum, but we ain't gonna swallow that crap here.

Anonymouse over the Line, sweet Eli,
Anonymouse over the line,
Blogging that sounds like the Aryan Nation,
Anonymouse over the line.

End his little life with a "snap", now Eli,
End his little life with a trap, this time,
Blogging that sounds like the Aryan Nation,
Anonymouse over the line.

Eli loves his mice. He might try and correct them now and again, offer useful advice, and a piece of cheese.

but don't scare the guests.

That was meant to scare the mice, not the guests... what to do with little mice when they get out of line.

Nah, you ask them out for a beer. If you want to scare them you say, hey, forgot my wallet, mind paying this time?

I'm confused. I thought forgetting your wallet was how to scare the denialist shills away.

No, the anonymice.
