All Your Vowels Are Belong To Us

In our never ending quest to keep the comment section on topic and under control I've deployed yet another tool for comment section editor Maggie Whitton to use - the vowel eater.

As opposed to deleting a comment that violates comment policy Maggie (and other authors) have the option to remove the vowels from your comment, rendering it a garbled mush. If all your comments are being disemvoweled then you should probably take that as a hint that you're not welcome anymore.

See this comment, for an example of what it looks like.

Seems the post was hit with a word eater. Quest for what? Troll free comment threads?

ExSubNuke:

Well this serves 2 purposes then.

1) the stated pupose of giving trolls the hint

2) gives us INTP types an amuzing puzzle to figure out what they said in the first place.

Well done.

I like that feature in general, but for good, ole Spurwing Plover?
Spurwing is a genius and a legend, you don't mess with excellence.
With a hearty 'squawk!' I salute you Spurwing Plover.
Remember, Ace misses you.

Good example Kevin, but you should have gotten that Hooson numbskull who decided to make this unsubstantiated charge in the same thread: "oe Arpaio looks to pride for serving moldy baloney sandwiches"

Sindarian:

I really don't like it. There has to be a better way. Have seen some lefty blogs do this and think it was as bad then as it is now.

If they violate civility, then hit them with the Troll Hammer. If you don't like their point, argue with them.

Humiliation is not the answer.

Sindarian, I beg to differ.... (Below threshold)

Sindarian, I beg to differ. It's far more humiliating for them when you point out, in argument, how stupid they can be.

Some of the more persistent ones just come back in under one of those anonymous proxy servers and a new handle, though. I've seen this happen on other blogs. For these clowns, something more humiliating is called for.
