So this blogs best buddy, Mr. Bill Schmalfeldt just posted this on his Twitter Feed:
Which I guess is his complaint that he’s been given his Eviction Notice from Blubber Sues Bloggers. Now Flynn, the host of that website, is a forgiving patient guy. He put up with a lot of hateful words from Schmalfeldt, but let Schmalfeldt speak his mind as long as he followed the simple rules. Now, let’s see if there could have been any reason, besides an attack on the constitution, that Flynn might not want to put up with Schmalfeldt any longer.
Could it be that Flynn put up a blog post calling Schmalfeldt out by name, for specific accusations of conspiracy that Schmalfeldt couldn’t back up, and instead of responding to Flynn’s points, Schmalfeldt time in the comment thread was spent attacking other commenters? Could that be it? Could it be that Schmalfeldt continually ignores direct questions put to him in comment threads on the site, instead calling people names and insulting them? Or could it be something far simpler. I give you this:
Let’s see, that’s a twit from Schmalfeldt telling Flynn to do a better job of moderating his comments. Takes a lot of nerve to be the fellow who’s insulting everybody, ignoring commenter questions and ignoring the host to say something like that, but he did. He sure did.
So maybe, and I haven’t talked to Flynn about it, either on his site or on Twitter (the only two ways I’ve ever talked to Flynn), but maybe good old Schmalfeldt made Flynn go look at his comments and realize that the vast majority of the mess going on in his comment section was being caused by Schmalfeldt and he did endeavor to make it better. He removed the person causing the problem.
That’s not an attack on free speech in any way shape or form. It is a host removing a guest that is no longer welcome because of the way he treats other guests.
Flynn was exceptionally polite to Schmalfeldt. Schmalfeldt wore out that niceness. Schmalfeldt had to go.
