This should go without saying, but...

To the person who tried to post two very ant-Semitic comments on my recent entry, and to anyone else who is so inclined down the road: I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to comments. But I draw the line at remarks that are unequivocally hateful, particularly when they advocate violence. If you have a point to make, why not make it in a mature and thoughtful way? If you show that you don't want to have a discussion, why in the world would I allow you to enter a forum that is supposed to be about discussion?
