Can editors EDIT comments from users?

A certain blogger and I have been having another spat. I know. I know. But she started it, really mother.

Take a look at the comments:

Lamido comments

Now, comments one and three are from me. They’re written in my usual ‘style’ – punctuation and all (whether it’s right or not).  When I ask a question, in comment one, there’s a question mark.

Comments two and four are written by someone else.

Comment five is not written by me, even though if you click my name it goes through to my blogger profile.  It’s written by the author of this blog.  I did submit a third comment, but it is not the comment that has appeared (having quickly grown tired of talking to two different sock-puppets, my somewhat provocative comment was “Have you considered seeing a doctor? Seriously”).

Can blogspot blog owners forge / edit comments without the system saying so?

  • And, to sum up, with the old blogger, yes, you could even edit the text of comments made by other registered users; it required hacing a url, but it was doable. I used to do it to fix URLs and remove some of the more choice language.

    No idea if you can on Blogger2 though, as I care not. When I reboot VTX, it’ll be OpenID/Registered only for comments, for the reasons above.

  • What is more bizarre if she HAS been chucked out of the Lib Dems is why she turns up at all the Lib Dem events in Camden. Are they not bothered that someone has breached party rules and has been forced to leave as a consequence is so readily accepted by Flick Rea and Keith Moffitt.

    She’s clearly a mad homophobe, which is ironic considering that most of Camden’s party is gay. So why do they accept her with open arms? Perhaps someone will care to explain.

  • But even so Rob – is it not like accepting the favour of company you should not like to keep? We’d all be in complete horror if someone was being openly racist and yet was allowed to get involved in a local party – despite being expelled nationally.

    This seems to be the type of behaviour that Labour and the Tories throw at us – that we say one thing and then do the other. It is very odd behaviour in my view.

  • It is extremely disappointing that you are closing down the debate on this Duncan. It is shameful that this person is still allowed to be a member by Camden.

    You are all legtimising homophobia.
