Dean made a good point in the comments to my previous post about editing troll comments to say embarrassing things. My blog idol, Frank (whose new fan blog can be found here), does it occasionally. The thing is, while my editing of its comments might be amusing to me, depriving the world of its idiotic babbling denies my readers the amusement value to be found in its obvious frustration, and its willful blindness to logic and common sense. Plus I needed something to post.

I actually deplore the censorship nature of changing someone else's words, and ya'll know how I deplore censorship. I try not to disturb any comments of any kind, even those of the most deplorable trolls, unless they seem to be of some commercial nature, then they are deleted. If the comment itself is not offensive, but the link of the author goes to some commercial site other than to a blog or some non-commercial homepage, I usually change the link to google.
If I get a really nasty comment, I might, however, spend almost an entire day fiskin' it. ;)
