Harry's had enough!

Harry Blalock, the most feared man in the Marianas, the man who can take down an errant politician with one radio interview, the man who stands up to any threat, has restricted his blog to invited registered users only.

The reason? Nasty comments.

That is something I'm all too familiar with.

I don't think Harry should restrict access to his blog. Take me for example, instead of restricting access to my blog, I prefer acting like an immature brat.

But seriously, if nasty comments bother you that much, just turn off the comments. Problem solved. Right?

I tell you what? If you open your blog back up, I'll make it one of the Saipan Blogger recommended Saipan Blogs. Come on, Harry, Tear. Down. That. Block.

That was my advice to HB on the comments. He's apparently fed up. I kind of felt that way during that whole, am I a racist fiasco. Nonsense anonymous comments, of which I've had very few, will be deleted as well.

Nasty comments are a part of Internet celebrity. They can be hurtful when you first read them, but you have to weigh the negativity with a dose of reality.

You have to learn to ignore the background chatter..and it is not easy.

I can't imagine what life must be like for real celebrities. No wonder so many of them try to commit suicide.

As they say, if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen, guess HB got out.

It's a loss to the dive community, a loss to the CNMI's struggling tourist trade, a loss to bloggers who like to see a well written set of posts and a loss to nudiabranchs everywhere.

My suggestion was for him to tell the detractors, whoever they were, to get bent.
