Blog Commenting Pathology

Deacon Greg of "The Deacons Bench" has interupted his trip to a family event to post a short piece about the totally inappropriate commenting found on many Christian blogs by a number of commenters. I have noticed the same thing and have simply stopped reading comments since one or two of these uncharitable comments about or adhominum attacks on fellow commenters or authors sour the whole discussion.

Greg has temporarily turned off commenting on his blog due to the unacceptable level this has reached on the blogoshere. Most authors have published rules for commenting and many have the time to moderate (publish only appropriate comments only) comments. This approach must be nigh impossible for very popular blogger such as Deacon Greg so I understand his action.

Read his entire posting.
