Well, where to start. How about with her blog rules…
Take note of the last line. The fastest way to lose your freedom is with ad hom arguments. Well, I know all about that having had multiple comments snipped apparently for ad hom arguments. I’m not going to go into whether they were or weren’t as it is irrelevant for this entry. What is relevant though is the line in her rules above where she says, “…..demanding answers to your questions without providing answers to ours…” Now I realise that that could be taken simply to be that “your” refers to all first timers and “ours” refers to all experienced commenters, however, it could also be directed solely at those of us that disagree with deniers. After all, why hasn’t Jo snipped these comments?
Andy clearly needs some anger management, not to mention a class in manners. I found these relatively quickly and you don’t need to search too hard at Jo Nova’s to find other examples of AGW proponents being snipped and being subjected to ad hom attacks.
Now, I don’t actually have a problem if Jo Nova wants to run her blog that way. It’s her blog and she can do what she wants. I just wish she would have the guts to admit that she has double standards and put it in her rules. Here’s my suggestion.
If you accept the AGW hypothesis, be aware that I am more likely to heavily moderate your comments than any of my fellow deniers because I am a paranoid, self obsessed, narcisistic, condescending hypocrite, afraid of any information being posted that is inconvenient for me.
At least that would be honest.
