Lili's thought for the day

Two of the most irritating contemporary cultural cliches: overuse of the words "devastating" and "devastated", and invitations to join "the conversation" online. No, I don't want to join the freakin' conversation!

Hmm, I thought I left a comment on this post just a few days ago. I note that I can't find my comment on another post in which I claimed to be a White Nationalist. Was that so bad it needed deletion? Why could not it have been left up for people to see it and refute my arguments, if they were able to do so?

I do understand that this is your private blog, and that you are perfectly within your rights to allow or dis-allow comments, for any reason or no reason. As Steve Sailer says in the comment policy for his blog, "Comments are approved, or not, at whim."

I'm sure that you are aware of the convention that comments at blog posts that are not on the topic of the blog post are for some blog writers unwelcome, but at the very least, the blog owner has no obligation to publish or leave up off-topic comments.

I respect honesty, but declaring one's self as a "White Nationalist" goes beyond honesty into racism territory. I'm not going there.
