ZOLTAN SAYS

Zoltan Szekely posted the following comment on the Comment Page:

"This is pretty much disgusting how you lump together all the comments here in one single page without any name or date attached. This is your way to "take care of" those who take time and effort to respond to your blog entries."

Dear Zoltan, thank you for using your real name when you posted this comment. All of the other comments are posted as "Anonymous" or a fictitious name is used . "Anonymous" is an option that Blogger gives you when you comment. Also, I posted the comments, all of them, both for and against me, on one page to make them easier to find for the average reader so they don't have to page through each post to find them.

Also, Zoltan, as you will note, at the end of each comment on the Comment Page is the link to the post where the comment can be found with the name of the poster and the date of the post. Did you try clicking on the links or were you in too much of hurry to call me "disgusting"? 

Just wondering. You are a great witness to the Neocatechumenal Way. Keep it up. We all look forward to more of your witnessing. In fact, I think so much of your comments, I'm giving you your own Label, so posts relative to your witnessing may be more easily found. More to come! Bye.


ZOLTAN HAS MORE TO SAY. (See his comment)


Tim, this is truly flattering that you set up a new label. However, regarding the questionable handling of comments at your Facebook page, I am not really inclined to make further comments. So your new label may die out very soon. ;(

I kinda find it sad that you promote a culture of anonymity at your blog that makes your commenter look cowards. Then you back stab by making murky references to their identities. Why? That was your trap?

Well, definitely not a very highly aiming culture of debate.

Dear Zoltan, Blogger is a turnkey Google App. The App gives the option of anonymity. And "references to their identities"? If they posted as Anonymous, what reference do I have? And as for the "highly aiming culture of debate", so far as I can see, you are the only one that has descended to using expletives (i.e. "disgusting"). But thank you for your contributions. I have saved them all.

  2. If you like it better this way: this handling of comments is intellectually dishonest .

    Why don't you erase anonymous comments?

  3. Dear Zoltan,

    It's the commenter's choice. Besides you, there are other Neo commenters who chose to comment as Anonymous. I guess you are calling your brothers and sisters in the Way "dishonest". Your choice. By the way. Instead of spending time criticizing me and my blog, start your own.

  4. No, I was talking about your comment page which is dishonest and totally absurd.

  5. I'll have to disagree with Mr. Szekely about the intellectual dishonesty of this blog and of the comment page. It is the choice of the commenter to be anonymous. Each comment is dated under the various blog entries posted. It would be interesting to know why is it that compiling all of the comments together into one post (anonymous or not) would be disgusting.

    Tim, Is this person related to you or no?

    1. I am told he is a distant relative. And given what he thinks, I will happily keep him distant.
