Non-fame at last – a Guardian moderator has deleted a comment I posted on the George Monbiot (aka The Moonbat) blog today.
The post was a long rant about how Tony Blair was a war criminal who should be arrested and dragged before a People’s Tribunal. (Sort of. See for yourself.)
I was vastly entertained by the post, as I always am by the Moonbat’s ravings, and I made the following comment:
The Moonbat speaks!
And this is way past his best.
My favourite bit:
To stimulate this process, I will put up the first £100 of a bounty (to which, if he gets the job, I will ask readers to subscribe), payable to the first person to attempt a non-violent arrest of President Blair. It shouldn’t be hard to raise several thousand pounds. I will help set up a network of national arrest committees, exchanging information and preparing for the great man’s visits. President Blair would have no hiding place: we will be with him wherever he goes.
So the Moonbat is financing a Guardianista goon squad? A kind of N4 Dog the Bounty Hunter posse?
Please, George…no more. My stomach hurts from laughing.
Laugh … I thought I’d never start …
OK, Oscar Wilde it ain’t. But it was just a lunch-break dig, and some of the other posts were way beyond pompous. I thought it was a fair pop.
And I only mocked. Usually, the Guardianistas just mock back.
Imagine my surprise, therefore, when I hit Reload and saw the following in place of my witty riposte:

Carrying moderation to excess
I dunno. Seems a bit much. I know it’s their server and all that – but can’t they take a joke? And it makes me wonder what else they’re moderating, and why they’re moderating it.
