New Rule For Those Wishing To Leave Comments – No Profanity

I think that I have been rather lenient over the past year, allowing many comments to be left on blog entries that have been a bit off-color and at times personally vindictive.
I know that there are a few individuals, some of whom I know and others that I don’t, who are very passionate about a subject and tend to become frustrated at times with some of the nonsense that a handful of others post, but to lower yourself to a level where you feel it necessary curse and call others names, doesn’t reflect well on the other readers of this blog or myself for allowing it to be posted.
I want readers to leave comments but I don’t want them to feel that if they have a difference of opinion from myself or others that they will be ridiculed or have profanities thrown at them.
I want to remind people to stay on point to a certain degree and use appropriate language. No Profanity!
The No Profanity rule goes for myself also, there have been a few times in the past where I have been just as guilty of others and I will adhere to the rule in the future as well (but of course I reserve the right to break it when I feel necessary).
So moving forward from this day on, I will not post any comments that contain any tirades that uses profanity or off-color remarks directed towards others.
I consider everyone who posts comments to the blog to be intelligent (to a certain degree) and I value their participation. I am not looking to run anyone off or ban anyone from posting, I just want the comments to remain on an adult and constructive level.
Leave the childish name calling for the school yard (no wait, maybe not, that would be bullying, better just not to name call at all) and express yourselves without so much animosity towards others.
Now let’s move on…

Middletown GOP Thug, Stephanie Murray Supporter, Leaves Threatening Comment On MiddletownMike Blog

Hello All,

Earlier today I received a disturbing comment left on my MiddletownMike blog by someone who claims to be a personal friend of Middletown Republican candidate for Township Committee Stephanie Murray.

This individual writing anonymously as “The real Big Mike” left a number of derogatory comments about myself ,which is not an issue, I’m a big boy and it comes with the territory, what does disturbs me though is this persons idle threats. Threats to find credit card statements or track down doctor visits and to “go all out” digging for information against me and “everybody” in my circle.

Obviously this person is delusional but a threat is a threat and they can not be taken lightly no matter how absurd they may seem.

Is this the type of person that Stephanie Murray and other members of the Middletown GOP like to call supporters and friends?

I hope not, but if so then others should know about it. That’s why I have forward the below message to Mrs. Murray, as well as everyone else in my address book. I am asking you to do the same.

This type of behavior in the name of a candidate for elective office crosses the line and should never be tolerated. If it is, then we have to question whether or not that candidate is fit to hold elective office in Middletown or elswhere.

Subject: [MiddletownMike] New comment on The Making of a Republican Candidate in Middletown….

The real Big Mike has left a new comment on your post “The Making of a Republican Candidate in Middletown…“:

So a friend of mine told me about your left leaning site. As is typical with all leftist people, you dont report the news. Instead you report your side of a story and in your head, you actually believe it to be accurate. We do have one thing in common. Im big Mike also…Im big cause Im 6’4 and 230 lbs. Your Big cause your 5’11 and 320…Either way we have something in common……

As I read through you posts, it hasn’t been to difficult to see why you have never hit it big in journalism. I think I’m going to due some poking around also.Your life needs to be examined a little so the other bloggers know who they are talking to. There must be a picture out there of you shoving a few yodels down your throat while watching Tom and Jerry reruns. There must be a credit acrd that you made a late payment on or some doctors visit that you had and gave a flase name to avoid payment. You obviously arent a fan of Michele Obamas anti obesity campaign so I wont find anything there.

Im a personal friend of MRS. Murray. Yep I said it..Can you imagine. What scares liberals is the truth. You won’t discuss the issues because you will lose. So you try to dig up some secret dirt that you think will help sway votes. Here is the Deal…Her Dedication to public service is unquestionable. In fact she does it for free….Her parental skills are awesome. She is a wonderful mother and wife. She is loaded to the gills with friends. Her children go to Catholic school to learn about God. Just like some jewish children go to Hebrew school. She is basically knowledgable in every subject from why trees have leaves to the liberal agenda….She lives her her life based on code and dignity.

Now, if you want to discuss political issues Im your man. If you want to try to figure out waste in Middletown, again Im your man. And if you want to slant people or talk trash Im your man once again….I think it wouldnt be in your best interest to go that route. If I start diggin, I go all out…That includes everybody in your circle…just saying………..
