Following on from this closed thread, here is a great example of why allowing blocking of comments to content posted to the main public area is a bad idea -

This item was posted and has all commentary disabled. Here is an extract -

Imagine that, by some revolution, the constructs of our religions were dismantled in some wholesale action. However, because our laws rest in an inextricable bondage to our religions almost irrespective of which nation we inhabit, these too would firstly be disengaged from the tenets which they uphold and which uphold them. Were the dismantling of the religious orthodoxy on some scientific grounds for example, there could be no justification for the indexing of any human acts as either "good" or "bad". Beyond religion, every human act would be simply unindexed. It would be an act of human nature. We would, in effect be bound [and I use the term loosely] by one abiding law only: the law of Man; the law of human nature wherein everything is permissable, similar to the tenets of Thelema: Do as thou wilt.

Quite aside from being toxic, even anti-humanist, bile, it is also a veiled advertisement for a book.

I don't mind folks that want to initiate discussions of this level of derangement, but to do so and have the safety of immunity from criticism really does suck. Means pretty much anybody with an axe to grind can post whatever gibberish they want with absolute impunity. Not even the white male haters have done that (yet).
