On Comments

I try very hard to make SWPAS into something other than a cesspool and for the most part, it isn’t.

However, working on this site for almost 10 years has shown me that prequel haters and bashers aren’t the only problem I’ve had to worry about.  In fact, they have been less and less of an issue except for a big flare up on the FB page around the time TFA came out.   What I’ve noticed over the past couple of years have been some aggressive visitors to the site who seem to want to use it as their soapbox for their agenda (easier and less time consuming I suppose than starting one’s own blog, podcast, or channel).  They’ve been disrespectful to me and to other visitors and when I call them on it, they get hostile.  I’ve had to ban a few from commenting and some will do things like come up with socks or change their IPs to get around moderation.  This behavior is unacceptable.  I catch anyone doing that, they are done commenting here, period.

I’m also done with feeling like a babysitter.  I’m not a social worker or a mental health specialist.  If the situation doesn’t change I may close SWPAS to comments sometime in the near future.
