Everything in moderation,
Is a maxim fairly sound,
Though I feel some consternation
When my comments there are found!
Though deploring altercation,
I think you will come to know
Is a better way to go.
Why do bloggers think they need to
Gaze suspiciously at each
Comment made, to be agreed to
Ere their blog those words can reach?
Is their filter, there for spamming,
Not sufficient for the task?
Surely, if one wants some scramming,
In response, you merely ask?
Could avoiding confrontation
Be the reason for this course?
Though those causing consternation
Can be booted out by force?
Why would trolls, on some occasions,
Pleasure find in being chased?
By responding to invasions,
One can make them feel disgraced.
Language earning disapproval
Can, with edit, disappear;
Standards will, with such removal,
Instantly become quite clear.
Are you looking for endorsement
Of each sentence that you write?
Scarcely gets debating right.
Reconsider, I am urging,
Policy to moderate –
Such unnecessary purging
Is a practice that I hate.
