Blogger sued over reader comment

I have always been ambivalent about adding comments to my posts. I know it’s the “right” thing to do but I don’t want to spend even 5 minutes monitoring and deleting crap. And while it’s not the same, anyone can email me if they have something to say and I frequently add it to the post.

And now we read that a blogger is being sued as a result of something someone wrote in a comment to one of his posts. Maybe it’s like inviting half a dozen close friends over for a few beers. You can discuss and argue and even yell dirty words at each other and that’s okay. But you don’t want some dildo off the street to come in and join the conversation. At least I don’t. I gotta think some more about this.
