I was told when I started this that comment management can be a pain in the ass. And it is. I really don’t know the protocol so I figure it out myself. I try and ensure all opinions are represented. I try and keep it civil but don’t always. And I try and make sure the comments keep it interesting.
Recently one commenter has complained that I’m stifling debate because I’ve held back three of his lengthy comments. Here’s his recent post to me, which he demanded I post or he would do ‘something’, I know not what.
Ian I have made three different responses to this discussion you have withheld.
I would like know why.
I am stunned by this “stifling of debate” and lends even more credence to Kwans notinons and statement.
I want this notice posted and a response please.
I dont appreciate wasting my time contributing to have you edit out my comments.
I can understand if they are smears and or trolling but I have had posts both on and off list in support of what I have been saying so I clearly am not here in a bid to undermine of castigate as many others whose posts you have allowed clearly are.
Please explain or i will post the responses to a broader audience and point them to these threads.

And here’s my response: Kevin, your two to three hundred word responses eat up room in the conversation and restate over and over again your point of view. I try to ensure no point of view is mis or underrepresented but I also try and ensure that one person doesn’t dominate and push out discussion. Keep it shorter please or write your own blog.
