Reaching very, very low into the barrel, one of the comments I left on a post  by "Sister Toldjah" was edited, and another was deleted. Almost all comments forms have a box where you enter your URL, and I entered this site's URL in that field; she edited the first message to delete that URL (there were no URLs in the comment body itself). Since I used the name "TLB" as I am wont to do, that URL helps people understand who's responsible for the comment. Note also that, like most other clueless bloggers, she has nofollow tags on those links so there's no real benefit to me from such a link. She also inserted her own comments in my comment; since it was clearly delineated, I'm not objecting to that.
The second comment I left under the name "LonewackoDotCom" and it didn't contain any links in the comment body, only that provided by her form. It was deleted entirely.
Both comments in the extended entry.
Previously in this long series of bloggers not being able to face the Lonewacko heat:
I note also that George Bush pledged to work for immigration "reform" to both the Mexican people and the Mexican government, so if people have been saying bad things about you due to your support for him, perhaps they were right.
That's odd: I left the first comment ("TLB"), and I included a link to my site in the "Website" field on the comments form. Now, the link is not there. I guess some people are afraid of providing access to the other side of the argument.
And, of course, we've had long periods in our history with little immigration, and I doubt whether the Founding Fathers ever envisioned that we'd absorb 14% of Mexico's workforce, so the reply doesn't square with the facts.
