I have been blogging for over a year and up till today I have never banned a commenter’s IP before. I have no problems with people disagreeing with me or challenging my statements. I am quite fallible and open to comments and I have changed posts in the past based on comments made.
But when someone starts to attack other commenter’s, that is where I draw the line. This commenter has been banned on other blogs because of his bashing of others and up to this point he had not engaged in that behavior on my blog. Earlier today I had deleted his comment and then banned his IP and just a couple of minutes ago he reposted the same identical vile under a different IP. I find it odd that someone would save a comment in the first place to repost in case of deletion.
In the past I have attracted comments from atheists and their comment’s reflected charity even though they disagreed with me and it is sad that a self-identified Catholic is the one that resorts to name calling.
My commenting policy is the same as the one Barbara Nicolosi wrote.
