If you think the new rigourous regime in Slugger’s commenting facility is bad – (David Vance has taken to calling us ‘Pravda’ on occasions), check out the latest in China, where all blogs, commercial or otherwise, must register with the government by 30th June. At least we at Slugger (bloggers and commenters) still get the odd opportunity to ‘speak truth to power’.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
