4. A correspondent objects to a comment that repeats the libel about Obama and the Muslim religion. As much as I despise the sentiment the writer expresses, I really don't have the time or inclination to delete comments that, however dimly, have bearing on the subject at hand, although I do reserve the right to delete comments at will and with no prior or subsequent explanation.
People's reactions are their reactions, and some of them may be odious, like this one. Comments represent the views of those who write them; I will not excuse the writer's ignorance by giving the writer the satisfaction of seeing his (or her) assertion declared out of bounds.
In general, comments by you folks do not represent the views or opinions of The Atlantic (apparently, no longer the Atlantic Monthly), the Atlantic Media Group, its editors, executives, authors, financiers, fans or IT technicians.
