This is a picture of the largest non nuclear bomb regularly produced by the United States. It is called a Daisy Cutter. When it falls it destroys everything within 300 meters in any direction. The fireball and blast are so frightening that the threat of the use of it is enough to make any people rethink whatever it is that they were doing that ticked the US off. It is called a Daisy Cutter because it cuts down everything in sight.
There has been a bomber on this blog who has dropped blog bombs so large as to make it almost impossible to carry on a thread conversation about the subject of the blog entry or for that matter any thread of conversation that arises from it.
This Blog Bomber has effectively blown everything away, and those of us beyond the blast sometimes have fed further bombing by trying to engage in conversation with the poster, often simply known as “anonymous.” So as a result I have had to invoke blog maven rights and will now review all comments before they are posted. This is called comment moderation. I will pass most immediately on to the blog so that conversations can continue. A number of us have valued the comments on PRELUDIUM and it is good to have conversations be as open as possible. However, long postings totally unrelated to the thread, or ones that essentially belong on a blog devoted to someone else’s concerns will not make it.
I hope friends of this blog will understand. And I hope the blog bomber will move on.
