Peanut Gallery -- Too Much Bob?

I'll continue to read your articles in the Spokesman Review online but I'm done with HBO. Bob's antics suck the oxygen out of the room and take much of the enjoyment out of it. Eagle Eye, Jane Q Citizen and others have complained in recent weeks as well but nothing seems to change. The bottom line is, the in-your-face political vitriol that he is allowed to spew 24-7 is tiresome and (in my opinion anyway) is just as insulting as many of AnyMouse's posts were. It's your blog and your rules and I understand that so rather than wait and hope that things will change (which I have no control over) I'm just going to quit visiting HBO. It's the holiday season after all, and the last thing I (and others) need or want is to be constantly derided as rednecks, an idiots or backwards because we don't happen to agree with the political beliefs of Bob.

DFO: I'm going to run this e-mail I received this morning from an online friend anonymously. Am I blind to the antiques of His Bobness, my enfant terrible? I consider him, and his creative genius, a bigger plus than a minus. And I allow more elbow pokes after 6 p.m. on weekdays and during the weekends when there's little commenting activity. Isn't that a good arrangement? On the other hand, too many good people on the blog are being poked in the eye. What to do?
