This blog was recently spammed by a person who claimed to be from Melbourne.
I have never received any communication from this person outside the comments and multiple links said person consistently posted in direct, and what can only be considered hostile opposition to what I had written.
My blog is not just an academic exercise, it will consist of various genres that reflect areas I have an interest in and think worth sharing with people who share those interests.
For the most part what I post here is drafted, well-considered and edited, with the opposing positions in mind. I seem to have been targeted by someone who had no intention of reasoned discussion, even though I put a lot of work into sourcing my material and acknowledging an antithesis when it is appropriate to do so.
They appear to have wanted to ‘grief’ my readers and me. Such are the times we live in. I accept that, but I don’t have to put up with it.
As a consequence, I will delete any and all comments that fall outside what is to be fairly considered a dignified critique. I do not & will not delete fair critique of what I write. After all, being teachable is an important part of Christian living and the academic journey.
I have a deep appreciation for those who choose to comment respectfully, and who provide some life to this blog, in response to what I post on it. Please continue to do so, I value your thoughts and thank you for sharing them responsibly.
