In a comment on my last post, I joked about using the banhammer. I've never banned any commenter (I don't think I've even deleted a comment, being remarkably spam-free), but, as I indicated in a previous post, I think the one offense that would prompt a ban is posting disparaging comments about Nena Kerner and/or her eponymous band. Regarding Ms. Kerner, let's just say that, on my part, it's always been Leibe auf den ersten Blick:
As if she weren't worthy of your complete adoration before, the Wiki indicates that she recently founded a school based on the Sudbury model. I hope this doesn't upset anyone, but I think that Nena is better than kittens. Yeah, I said it, don't make me bring out the banhammer!
Note: Even disparaging comments about Nena's headband will be considered borderline. You've been warned!
