As well, through WordPress capabilities, which I vaguely hinted to you before in an effort to give you a heads up, when you use multiple screen names to comment on WordPress blogs, the IP address stays the same, and the host (in this case, me) can see this. You have been commenting on my blog for a long time under numerous pseudonyms including “MHS”, “Dee”, “Former HS Math Teacher”, “it could go either way”, “You’re kidding right”, as well as others. Under these many different aliases, you have attempted to sway public opinion in regards to several different matters I’ve written about. While this is certainly your constitutional right, I find it very manipulative in a position such as your own to do so and it is not something a State Board of Education Executive Director should be doing. I am unable to verify if you are the same MHS that has commented on Kilroy’s Delaware the past several years, but given the nature of the comments I am inclined to believe it.
One of the bloggers golden rule is you don’t out anyone! Kilroy might be a scumbag to many but trust and confidentially is a must. Now I get pissed when someone hiding behind a screen name makes “deep” personal attacks to other commenting. I’ve asked people to stop and even put people on moderation (where each comment is screened). I’ve come under personal attacks and it goes with the job :). I’ve removed comments made against another and I even deleted blog posts of my own. There are some who “think” the can manipulable me into deleting post. However, so are playing with fire !
I see Kilroy’s as a virtual kitchen table (Keep an eye on Markell because he’ll steal the phrase) and sure I put the meat on the table via truths, half-lies and even out-right lies. I like to say, I drive debate and in debate is truth and sometimes compromises.
Blogs should and must be a safe-haven for those working in education and government to engage the public and many have reasons to protect their ID’s as in they’ll get fired or reprimanded. Far too long many good people stayed silent and blogs can be a safe way for them to express themselves, share good and bad position and even give us inside information.
My rule of not exposing anyone still stands and I must remind everyone though I’ll never reveal you ID but if you liable yourself and a court order was issued for your ID , its on you!
Personally I don’t care if Satan comes here to play or his understudy Publius 🙂 Like in politics, there are extremes (views and opinions) on both ends of the spectrum. However, the sane world lives in the middle where rational consensus exists. If you can’t stand the heat stay out of the kitchen!
