In the last two days I have instituted full comment moderation for two people who make frequent contributions to the advancement of the our knowledge about the shroud. In each case it is because they frequently resorted to bullying and insulting personal attacks. It has nothing to do with their opinions about the shroud.
Many of us resort to insults now and then. These two individuals did so excessively and repeatedly.
That does not mean that these two people have been removed from this blog. It means that each time they offer a comment, I must read it first. If I find it acceptable, I will let it appear. Time permitting, I may edit the comment to make it acceptable if it contains important information. I don’t want to make that decision, so most likely I will simply delete the comment if it seems unacceptable.
