OCCAM’S RAZOR AND MODERATION- THE SIMPLE SOLUTION
THANKS BUT NO THANKS CAPTAIN: We checked with blogger and while the Captain (or anyone) could be a guest blogger with the ability to make posts, (s)he would not have the ability to moderate comments. The only solution would be to give the Captain access which computer nerds from the 1970’s would call “root” access. We would have to give the Captain our log in name and password, and then he could act like us, including changing the password and locking us out!
As the first president Bush said “wouldn’t be prudent.”
So, being a phan of philosophy, we turned to our old friend and Franciscan Friar William of Ockham, who is known for his logical theory of problem solving. We are somewhat reaching and simplifying the theory (for our robed readers) when we say that the theory says “the simplest solution is usually the best solution.”
OUR SOLUTION: RANDOM MODERATION:
Simply put, (Occam would be so proud) the blog will have immediate postings at times we are available to quickly monitor the posts, and will be moderated at times we are in trial, on a plane, or in a bar.
All of these complex thoughts and attempts to solve the problem, and in the end we resorted to our old favorite :
SEE YOU IN COURT MODERATING THE BLOG.
PS: I am speaking to those few idiots who try and ruin this blog with attempts like the one we deleted recently about a judicial candidate and little boys. If you try and ruin this blog, we will find out your IP address, hunt you down, and make you handle arraignment calendars in Judge Areces and Judge Adrien's division for a year!
