ahem. is this thing on?

all right then folks, since we all run separate weblogs, and we are all adept at raging meta-meme's about ourselves, here's one: how to respond to the increasing activity of "comment nazis." you've read their work. while Alison diligently deletes their often baseless, arbitrary, or personally slanderous posts, ryan has been letting them go, more or less, with appropriate witty comebacks and the occasional reprimand. it seems neither the stern road, nor the path of least resistance prevents certain folk from taking their chance to speak up, only to speak down. Now I'm all for healthy criticism, and will even tolerate the attention-seeking Sancho, but how do we dissuade the miscreants?
