I get lots of spam which I delete, but today was the first time I deleted a real comment. It was for this post. Kind of ironic I suppose, but I’m including the comment here:

While I suspect the anonymous poster and I share some political opinions our approach to the problem is quite different. Foul language and name calling do not improve your standing with the public at large or the people that make law and policy. If you feel it does put it on your own site or someone else’s that agrees with your mythology. It won’t be hanging around on my blog for long. The IP address above resolves to Overland Park, Kansas. I’ve spent enough time in Kansas to know that there are some bright, articulate people there. The person that left the comment above does not represent the people of Kansas that I know.
