Yesterday friend Trevor Cook lamented the personal invective and other undesirable stuff which can be associated with some comments sections on blogs.
As a low-profile blogger on a hard to find street corner I manage to avoid much of that - even though I do have a modest political statement visible in the lower right hand corner of this blog which I knew would one day inevitably draw some adverse comment.
Today I opened this blog to find an anti-semite dropped by with an example of his intellect.

What to do? Leave it displayed as testimony that proves my and Nico's points about holocaust deniers, or tip it out as one would any other foul smelling piece of garbage?
I'll render my decision to myself in a couple of days.
