Polite censorship on WordPress

This is the second time that Ms. Nee closed comments on her blog before I was able to respond to one of her comments.  And it’s funny, but I don’t think she does this very often… if at all, before now.  But see, I have a WordPress site of my very own now…

Sure, everyone has a right to censor their own blog, especially from mean or nasty comments. But that’s not the case here…

Don’t worry, Ms. Nee, I won’t be making any more comments on your blog.  I sincerely appreciate all the information you’ve posted about Unum. And I assume that your blog is also a marketing tool for your business, helping you obtain clients.  But as I told you via email, I can’t afford your rates, so you already know I’m not a prospective client… I assume you would prefer that claimants use your services instead of going it alone or hiring an attorney.  Sure, I guess I can understand why you closed down the comment sections where I made posts…

But just because I can’t afford to live in your world, Ms. Nee, doesn’t mean I don’t have opinions worth sharing — which I don’t have to do on your blog, granted.  I can respond to your blog posts right here…

Lindanee said:  Were it not for the contract you wouldn’t have had coverage or benefits at all.

And now, my uncensored response:

At first, I was going to say, “Touche, Ms. Nee, and a happy holidays to you, as well.”  But that sounded kinda snarky, so here we go:

“Only free men can negotiate. A prisoner cannot enter into contracts.” Nelson Mandela

Definition of “prisoner”:  a person who is or feels confined or trapped by a situation or set of circumstances.

If you don't comment, I'll just assume you agree with me
