To all webmasters who operate a website that allows readers to post comments,
You are directly, or, at least, impliedly endorsing the principles of Free Speech if you allow readers to post comments.
The ONLY comments that should ever be deleted are comments that are either unlawful (i.e. violates a civil or criminal law) or not relevant to the topic.
All lawful and relevant comments should be allowed, especially lawful and relevant comments that are deemed the most disagreeable.
You are a hypocrite, which is the ultimate form of despicability, if you allow readers to post comments, but delete a reader’s lawful and relevant comment because you deem the comment disagreeable.
P.S. The webmaster always has the right to block all comments.
