Lately, a few blogs where I attend have gone to closing off their public’s replies.
It is a sad situation.
Their positions have all failed scrutiny, so their only response is censorship. They cannot debate or dialogue rationally, so they opt for the delete key so to maintain their illusion that “they are still right”.
The Universe is not fooled, however. Their positions cannot stand, and eventually the Universe will correct them – and as it typically does to those that refuse reason, it will correct them harshly.
