Blacklisted on BVBL?

Well, I tried to post a comment on Greg Letiecq's website, and got this message.

Things like this make me wonder whether Greg can't stand a little truth. Much like the far Left, it sometimes seems like he prefers an echo chamber.

Frequently, it seems that Greg only considers it "malicious" --- and complains --- when the criticism is leveled at someone with whom he agrees. Belittlement, lies, and simple childishness seems perfectly acceptable when directed at the right targets.

No wonder his website has become the home of the peurile and sophomoric losers in Prince William County. Even if, truth be told, it seems to be among the most popular local blogs.

Actual, rational debate, and recognition of actual records, frequently seem not to matter.

UPDATE: Greg has posted a comment (please read it, below) which suggests that his anti-spam filter may be a little too vigorous. Frankly, I've had some nonsensical comments from a delusional candidate from California that I wish had been blocked.

Fair 'nuff. When Greg and I have had disagreements, he has usually said so up front, so I've changed the text above somewhat. I'm willing to take him at his word. I wouldn't have posted this, but for the fact that it seems to have happened a couple of times over the last few days.

I owe him an apology, and I apologize.

James, what in the heck are you talking about? If you were blocked, you wouldn't be able to access the posting URL at all, nor any of the pages on the site.

About the only thing I can imagine going on is that you somehow ran afoul of the "Bad Behavior" plugin that tries to prevent automated systems from posting comments. Usually refreshing the page and giving it another shot resolves it, but if you use your browser "back button" a lot, sometimes it duplicates the behavior of spambots.

Try again, please. You haven't been banned.

I wonder if having them is worse than being one?

In any case, I don't have to tolerate personal insults on my own website, particularly from an anonymous coward who lacks the guts to sign his/her name to his/her insults. I've deleted the insult.

I couldn't use you link to see what you were seeing, because Greg is still scared to let me even read his blog.

Seeing all the mistakes he and his commenters have been making lately, I guess I understand it's bad for him when there's someone reading who corrects them all the time.

But I really thought Greg would grow up after his efforts at derailing the 51st convention failed.

Have you seen some of his latest posts concerning an alledged "murder-in-the street" in Manassas Park? What Murder? Where? How can he post such drivel? One can only imagine that if he checks all of his "facts" like the "false murder" story the next thing we'll read about is illegal alien flying saucers landing in Manassas Park.
