A number of comments have been coming in today from students who were assigned to read this blog and comment on it. This is pretty cool and I appreciate it.
However, some of these comments have been fairly nasty. Now, don’t get me wrong. This is a free country and you can think or write whatever you want. But you should know this – I have set up this LJ so that anonymous comments are screened. That means that I have to read and approve of them before they can be seen by the rest of the world. I promise you this – if you write posts that are hateful or defamatory, I will not unscreen them. Save your energy. Get your own blog, if you want. If you really hate the assignment that much, then maybe you should discuss it with your teacher.
I know that sounds cranky, but my foot is killing me. I’m going to go read for a while.
