This guy tried to post in one of our other threads, and because there was a distinct whiff of racist arsehat about his comment, it wasn’t published. We have no interest in our regular commentors being confronted with offensive remarks that make the commenting space an intimidating place, and we are not going to let it occur.
Disagreement is welcome, but keep it civil, because if you submit a comment that is abusive, hateful or otherwise offensive, then we decline to publish it.
His response to his post being moderated, below, has been munged with ROT-13 because it is abusive and potentially triggering. (To transform, copy the text below and paste it into the ROT-13 converter here.)

His handle is Stiv and he’s posting from a dynamic IP in Annapolis, MD. Charming chap, isn’t he?
Stiv, snookums, nobody is obliged to listen to you if you are being a jerk. “Free speech” means that the government can’t legally shut you up, not that anyone else has to let you say whatever obnoxious crap you like in their own space. Stink up your own blog with hate speech, it’s not getting posted here.
