Beware those Buzz comments



It has come to our attention that someone on Dec. 9 posted a comment critical of Charlie Crist and Jim Greer ("I'm through with Crist & Greer") under the name Linda Ivell, who is president of the Florida Federation of Republican Women. Mrs. Ivell tells us she did not post that comment, and we deleted it. We also have blocked the IP address of the person who posted it.


It's a reminder, for those not already aware, that the anonymous Buzz comments on the site reflect, ahem, not necessarily the gospel truth. They should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. And while we encourage free-wheeling participation, we do periodically delete comments and/or block IP addresses.

How about some new year's resolutions that 2009 will be a year free of abusive or bogus Buzz comments?
