A Blog Is NOT a Democracy

Posted on 26 May 2013 by Andrei

Personally, I publish pretty much all comments aside from obvious spam messages and stuff like that. Some people are more strict when it comes to moderating comments and you know what, it’s their right to do that.

A blog is someone’s private property.

Simple as that.

Some people think a blog is a democracy and that it’s somehow their “right” to comment.

No, it’s not.

Commenting is a privilege that can be taken away if the blog owner considers that course of action appropriate.

If you visit someone’s offline store wearing filthy clothes and using foul language, that person has every right to ask you to leave. It’s his store and he has the right to say no to potential clients.

The same principle applies to blogs 🙂

    I there a point to this, by which I mean a point that anyone should give a shit about? It’s your blog – you can mouth off about whatever you want, but I feel like I just wasted a couple of minutes of my time.

    What’s tomorrow’s subject? Maybe you could write about how people have a right to walk around with their shoe laces untied.
