To our new Obama supporter visitors

Welcome to The Confluence!  We are glad you stopped by.  You have probably dropped in before but for some reason, today was the day you chose to comment.  And, hey, we’re all for free speech and first amendment and all that.  We know you have a choice of blogs to register your opinion.  We would like to encourage you to exercise that choice and express your opinion somewhere else, especially if you insist on insulting us or our friends.

This is not censorship.  Censorship would be a situation where I am deleting your comments and you had nowhere else to post them.  This is not the case.  I am deleting you because you are rude and obnoxious and you have plenty of other places to go to be rude and obnoxious.  You can go to DailyKos, Talkingpointsmemo, HuffingtonPost or any number of other sites where you will feel more at home and we will feel more comfortable. There are places and times to behave badly and The Confluence is not one of those places.  Likewise, the campaign trail in North Carolina was probably not the best place for Obama to make rude and obnoxious gestures (note the plural), especially right before a high-stakes primary.  If you feel he might have gone too far, you might want to have a talk with HIM, not US.

If you go elsewhere, we will not be offended.  Rest assured, we know what your position is (anti-Clinton) and we can predict with relatively good precision what you would like to say.  So, there is no reason to belabor your point here.  But keep it up everywhere else!  The material you are providing is priceless and, indeed, we wouldn’t be here today without all of your efforts.

Oh, by the way, thanks for the confirmation that we have really struck a nerve.  Your comments are hillariously funny.  I can almost read the flop sweat.

Thanks and have a nice day.  🙂

The Proprietress
