  1. KTG: what are you doing with your blog? You are allowing ad hominem attacks against me, and then closing the post so that I cannot even reply. I thought that we had all agreed that personal attacks will not be tolerated. There are two against me — apparently from Golden Toilet members — on just one post.

    If you want your supporters to quit, this is one sure way of doing it. I do not come here to be insulted by fascists and then prevented from replying.

  3. When you insult everyone else it ok. Maybe you need to quit the site most of us prefer it

  4. KTG. Are you stupid? Your blog is being abused by Golden Toilet, and they want to stop decent people from posting here. These Nazis (like “John”) are threatening us at least as much as the Troika, probably more so. I am not going to post here again unless you agree to do something about it.
