Tom Blanton Discovers That I Archive All My Comments

It’s a feed of all the comments I post anywhere in the blogosphere, allowing those comments to be searched and archived in one place. Every posting links back to the conversation where it was originally posted.

It’s hilarious that you think this practice constitutes slander, and that you can control how/where/whether I publish my own writings.

This is too hilarious. Tom Blanton here is quoting from As I said is my policy, that posting links to the original, at, where it is comment #100.

I invite anyone who is really really really bored to try to find a posting on M.L.I. that I can’t show is a re-posting from elsewhere. I occasionally forget to include the backlink, but I never post content to M.L.I. that isn’t copied from somewhere else, precisely because M.L.I. is only for searching and archiving.

I got the idea for such a feed from seeing Charles Johnson do it at

Readers can judge for themselves how “weird” it is for me to write this: Blanton says he has no interest in voting for a Barr or a Holtz. What he still doesn’t comprehend is that his brave and daring act of non-voting isn’t interpreted by the political world the way that he fantasizes that it is. His not voting doesn’t yell “smash the state!” It simply whimpers that he doesn’t care whether public policy moves to the left vs. to the right vs. toward freedom.
