I’m the Distorted Security Code Standing Between You and This Web Page

I had someone pay me a visit earlier today looking to leave a comment on a blog.
I’ve got nothing against a person exercising their freedom of speech, unless they happen to be a spammer pushing generic Cialis pills on an innocent gardening site. That’s the kind of first amendment breach I can’t abide by, so I spun a nice little web of alphanumeric gibberish for them to get caught in. And it was sticky, my friend. Sticky with the saliva of the law. -- McSweeney’s Internet Tendency

Your Say

Gerard, I greatly admire your policy of open comment. It is a courageous statement. I follow a many bloggers, but very few still allows all comers their say.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Instaputz.

...few still allows all comers their say.

That's if you believe they have a right to their say. Sort of like Imus' comment about speech on his program. "Get your own damn radio station!"
