    its that time of year again 

    where i have to remind people about how to leave anonymous comments.

    you can certainly leave comments that don’t include your name, your email address, or your web page – if you are being complimentary towards me.

    the comments section on the busblog are there to agree with me, to kiss my ass, to ask me out on a date, to clarify something, to add to the discussion, and to ask questions like “if i gave you $50 via paypal, can you keep it between us cuz my wife would blow her stack.”

    if you want to say something negative about me do it in your own house. Especially if you don’t have the guts to put your name next to it.

    my name really is tony pierce.

    its not like i say safe things in here: i bash the sitting president, i preach responsibility and peace and Christianity, i support Howard Stern, and i even back our former president Bill Clinton.

    and i put my name next to it.

    negative commentators who don’t put their email addresses next to their statements are either liars or cowards and they shouldn’t sully this good thing that we have here called the busblog.

    i have been doing this thing for close to three years now, posting just about every day, and i have noticed that usually people who post negative shit hardly have anything of substance to say which is why they don’t want to align their “good name” next to it.

    so if they aren’t confident enough to own up to their own bull, then why should i give them a platform in which to speak?

    i have also noticed that the majority of anonymous negative commentary are people who espouse the republican beliefs: this does very little good to your cause or your party mr. drudge and you should reconsider this practice.

    i don’t think that i have ever written anyone who has left a comment on my blog via email.

    what the email slot does is lets people know that there is a real person behind the comment and that person owns an email address that they’re not afraid to release. if you’re afraid of spam, do like what i do and leave a letter out of the email address:

    dumbass@tonypierc.com

    i comment a lot on blogs for several reasons: i love it when people comment on mine, i like to be part of this global discussion, i want the bloggers to know that their posts are of value and worthy of debate.

    but i don’t want spam any more than the next person so in the email portion of the comment form i give the above email address.

    this way if the webmaster wants to ask me something privately, or if anyone wants to know “who the fuck” the commenter is, they will know its me.

    tony pierce

    defender of what’s right.

    who has the nads to put his name next to his shit.

    some people like my gorgeous goddess of a wife moxie puts this in the email box Moxie[at]moxie[DOT]nu.

    it defeats spam too.

    those cowards who say that they don’t want to put either of these options in the email portion of the comment box because of spam need to realize that they are infact spamming my comments with anonymous bullshit that nobody asked for.

    in a perfect world everyone would have a blog and naysayers of my beliefs could just leave that

    but then we’d see where else they’re full of shit and they’d be outted as being the frauds that they are.

    regular readers of the busblog know that i am quite tolerant for those who are new to this blog, and they see that i give fair warning before i delete posts or ban commentary who continue to break the rules and leave negative comments anonymously.

    i appreciate constructive criticism, but at this point of my life i don’t need it from people who are too chickenshit to leave any trail back to themselves.

    i seriously doubt that any of you would walk into a home with a mask, look around and disparage the host in disguise while cowering and hiding like a rat when asked your name.

    so don’t do that shit here.
