Annual Blog Moderation Purge

worst blog

Once a year, I clear the email addresses of readers who are moderated, giving them another opportunity to comment again. You may see comments from people that you haven’t seen in a while. More often than not, given the opportunity to play by the rules, these commenters — all of whom are Evangelicals — will take the rope given to them and hang themselves all over again.

Currently, thirteen readers are permanently banned from commenting on and reading this site. When they try to access my blog an error message is returned. This means they can’t read my writing, comment, or send me emails. Of course, my writing is published to other venues, so if someone is determined to read it, they will find a way.

Elliot leads the pack in failed attempts to access this site. As of today, he has tried to read my writing and comment 2,230 times — four times a day, on average. “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Bruce Gerencser, 66, lives in rural Northwest Ohio with his wife of 45 years. He and his wife have six grown children and thirteen grandchildren. Bruce pastored Evangelical churches for twenty-five years in Ohio, Texas, and Michigan. Bruce left the ministry in 2005, and in 2008 he left Christianity. Bruce is now a humanist and an atheist.

    Gosh dang! Elliott is trying so hard I’d give him (or her) a new chance. Dedication deserves recognition. Bad enough to be banned in Boston, condemned in Cleveland, banished from Baltimore, let alone barred from Bruce’s blog.

    Hi Elliott!

    Wherever / however you’re reading this (such as, on your next-door neighbor’s device), don’t give up. Keep trying. Run the race.

    And, if you’re a theist, never forget, your god is a mighty god. Miracles happen.

    Thoughts and prayers!
