Lemming Caucus

I am asking for the advice of the Lemmings. This is an important matter in some universe I am sure. Maybe it is not important per say, but it is something that affects all of us. Maybe not all of us, but it affects me. Or is it effects me? I am pretty sure it is affects, but I am not positive. Either way it has an impact on us all. Why didn’t I just say impact to begin with? I am going to start over.

Anyone who has come here more than one has to have noticed our “Anonymous” troll. He is mostly harmless and even entertaining sometimes. He has been with us since about our second week and has been a loyal troll of sorts. He never reads anything here nor does he ever actually comment on the subject at hand, but he does come at least once every three days or so.

The troll seems to like changing his name every couple of posts. I assume this is to create the illusion of numbers, but either way it does change its name on regular intervals. This is what has created my problem and caused the locks on the door to suddenly be used. I do not like people trying to fool me or who try to hurt others.

The troll is fond of posting under the names of other lemmings, such as Rex or Lisa in an attempt to start a war between them on this site. This is why I have placed the moderation on comments up. No comment will be deleted unless it violates one simple lemming rule: do no harm. You break the rule and your post is Memorex plain and simple.

What I need to know from the lemming crowd is if the moderation policy bothers you at all. I do not want to lose people because I have had to try and outwit a troll. Please let me know.

You're correct; it's affect.

I've had a few sporadic pests. When that kind of thing is a problem, I've enabled comment moderation, then removed it once it was no longer a problem. I don't think moderation will keep people who enjoy your site from continuing to visit.

New photo =D
Hi Serena.

Only two things work...delete, delete, delete, ignore......It works with Jackass and the other two Anons...

Ignore and delete.....

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, new photo. Been playing with Beta, which insisted that I create a new profile. Thought I'd better use a different pic in case I flub it up so bad they try to hunt me down. LOL.

BTW, I want you guys to know.....I would never under any circumstance put Kanrei (or anyone else) in the middle of any dispute I have with anyone.....This is his house and I respect his rules......

And if anyone has a problem with me, anon, or otherwise, take it up with me....Please....


P.S. love the new look Serena....I am considering putting up my photo, but I need to get my horns shined first.....

On two other blogs that I visit, the authors were forced to turn on moderation as well. After a time, the troll must have gotten bored and they were able to turn it back off. I hope that's what happens here.

Why, thank you, Rex. Do get those horns shined up so we can get a look at you.:)
