"I believe the Fear the Fin comments section has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the Commenters.
This is being done at the Editorial, Authorial, and Commentorial level. This is in direct opposition to the FTF FAQ and the Founding Fathers vision for this blog.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the comments section. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both Niemi lovers and Niemi haters are responsible for the situation we are in as a blog. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL.
This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic." MT
