His Grace has attempted to make his blog a bastion of free speech, but there are those who are intent on hijacking every thread for their own malignant and malicious purposes. When he has directly emailed the perpetrators and politely asked them to desist, he receives insult, invective, and condemantion that he is not prepared to tell 'the truth'. Unlike the other big-beast blogs - religious or political - His Grace is a one-man outfit and quite unable to delegate or operate shifts. He does not have a Lord Ashcroft-type backer and neither does he have a Times or Telegraph backroom operation. He is now attracting in excess of 100,000 visitors each month from all over the world, and the sustained onslaught of negativity has become a burdensome.
His Grace has therefore decided to ban all 'anonymous' comments, thereby forcing all communicants to register a Google account (pseudonymous, if preferred) before they may contribute to a discussion thread. Should individual accounts thereafter prove irritating or offensive, it is easier to identify the individuals (who sometimes post under a plurality of ad hoc identities) and ban them. This Parish Notice will therefore be the last item to accept purely anonymous comments.
His Grace will hereafter monitor any progress and prays that it will ameliorate his happiness and general well being. Should there be no improvement, he will not hesitate to take more drastic action, however terminal: he is not averse to silence or cessation.
