From time to time, the blog comments section gets argumentative. A visitor might say stuff like "I just found this blog" and then say how absurd the blog is, how disturbed the blogger must be, hitting the customary fan war points.
Often, someone who decides to tell the blog how it is will present themselves as uninvested and above it, even if they practically live here and have for months. I don't think the person is bothered by the blog being "ridiculous", just finds the bloggER infuriating and has gotten obsessed about it and competitive.
So I want to repeat something I posted last time: I have a statcounter that I set up awhile ago because somebody left a porn link on the blog disguised as a user i.d. And I realized somebody can decide to hijack a comments section or sidetrack a topic. In those cases it might be useful to block an ISP by matching the time stamp of the comment with the time stamp on statcounter. Statcounter has a lot of stats
I haven't blocked anyone's ISP and I don't look at the ISPs of most people who comment. But if a pattern shows up I might and have looked. I feel embarrassed if somebody is carrying on about how they got here, when they got here, and how much time they spend here when I have information about all that that they don't know I have. So I want to mention to people who comment that if this matters to them, they might want to hold back on the stuff they say about themselves like the amount of time they spend on the blog and when they found it if it's something the statcounter can contradict.
