time for some boundaries, I guess.

I’d like to take a moment here to address the very unfortunate turn my recent post has taken…

I was away from the computer the past two days, so I missed most of the action. But something needs to be done, as much as I wish it hadn’t gotten to this point. I’ve always wanted to keep loafe a very open place, for me especially, given that it’s my fucking site. I feel I have no choice though, and in place of my having to edit or restrict myself from saying whatever I want on the site I created and pay for, I am asking for a little bit of decency and respect on the part of loafe commenters.

I want to be clear here. I love loafe and I love writing on loafe and I know that I open myself up to a lot of umm..interesting things when I talk about so many personal matters here. I’m well aware of that fact. Plus, I’m all for freedom of expression. So I try very hard to stay out of the whole “censorship” thing by letting people say what they want and handle themselves however they feel appropriate. We’re all grown-ups here.

However, every person has to draw a line at some point and for me, it seems that time is now. I deleted comments I felt went beyond my acceptable level of good taste and respect, which says a lot because I have almost no regard for good taste or respect. I really truly dislike deleting comments, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but what was said leaves something much nastier.

There is a reason why I have private dialogues with some people and not others. That reason has been well demonstrated. I think it’s best summed up by a friend, who wrote to me regarding this subject, “I thought that level of smut was reserved for our private emails!” A joke of course, but at the same time it’s also an essential truth.

Perhaps I should just turn off comments completely, but why ruin the entire party? I also hope that this doesn’t deter people from commenting and saying what they want…but know that if you are saying gross things about my vagina, her color of hair and any activity that happens there, I will probably delete them.

    I have to point out that the phrase “sour taste in my mouth” is amusingly ironic when you consider the nature of the comment that was deleted. But then, it’s your way with words that makes you so delightful to me.

    It IS ironic and the funny thing is the original sentence said something like “it leaves a sour taste it my mouth, but what was said leaves an even nastier one” and then I thought to myself “okay, now I’m just asking for it.” so I wrote a disclaimer paragraph after that and called for restraint given my choice of words. but then I thought I didn’t need to be so obvious and I deleted that paragraph and edited the first sentence a little more.

    ahh, the thought process of a loafe entry. so fascinating.

    I am just going to write comments about flowers (petunias mostly) and dishwashing detergents. There is nothing worse than watching your alma mater lose the Men’s Hockey National Championship to wisconsin.
