Many people are now aware of the new plans to give the bloggers the control of their blogs and allow them to delete comments or block other users from their blogs. What many people are not aware of is that IC is already testing the idea in a sister website. I was given access to the site and here with JJ’s permission I include the comment section of one of the blogs. I think many contributors may find this of interest.

Sorry Wagging-Tail, I have deleted your comment. What do you exactly mean “Ask JM, they know everything”? I could not see any relevance to this blog and had to delete it.

I-Am-An-Arsehole, I find your name very strange. Which person would say I am an arsehole? People like you may say. I have deleted your comment anyway, I am an arsehole.

Peculiar-Secular, if you don’t see your comment in here, it is because I have deleted it. I have told you so many times that I don’t like to host the comments from people whose opinions are very different to me.  It is called democracy, get used to it. You can also write your own and post your comments there. Commmmmmmmpreeeeeehendo?

Thank you Porteghal, you are an excellent writer. There is however no point writing for this ungrateful lot. Our beloved Shah tried to educate this backward people and look how they rewarded him. These people deserve that Khomeini Gojastak.

I learnt through a friend yesterday that the king of Denmark has ordered a new pair of shoes to the royal shoe maker.  I know it is no related to this blog but I could not contain my excitement.

How many times do I have to tell you I am an arsehole? I don’t like your comments and doesn’t matter how many comments you leave here I delete them.  Now let me break the news to you. I don’t like you I am an arsehole.

Sorry Anonymous Sausage, I didn’t mean to delete your comment, it was a mistake. Could you post it again please because I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. I hope you don’t think that I am trigger happy or something, lol :-)

I had to delete your comment Quran-on-Demand. I couldn’t see how related was a verse of Quran about spiders to the subject of my blog.

Thanks Glory of Kings. This is not related to the subject of my blog but I leave it because I have great respect for you.

I completely disagree with you Thinking-Celery that bloggers controlling their blogs was a bad idea. It was the best idea because otherwise I could have not deleted your petty comment as I have done now.  Nothing better than being in control ; )

Sorry if this one is not completely related either but wanted to let everyone know that His Majesty King Bongo Bongo of Koukoumba tribe has married again. He has married her highness Big Boobs in a royal ceremony.  The king was dressed in a majestic Eagle’s feathers costume and the bride dress was made from chicken feathers.

I am sure you made it up Quran-on-Demand. I was going to delete it but I leave it for everyone to see that you make things up. Pathetic.

Thanks Khengouli for your insightful comment. I have deleted it anyway to give you a lesson so you won’t delete my comments next time. I don’t like to say this, but you are very chicky to leave a comment in my blog after you deleted mine.

Sorry Persian-Digest but I have deleted your extremely long comment. It was 6 times longer than the whole blog and probably no one would read all of it anyway. Just so you know, I don’t like very long comments.

by Porteghal on Sat Oct 29, 2011 11:52 PM PDT

I know how you think I am an arsehole. Or let me correct myself, you have no brain to think I am an arsehole. I have now blocked you. See you hopefully not.

That was a nasty comment Gold Finger. When are we going to learn to treat each other with more respect and compassion? I have deleted your comment and hope you don’t care to leave another one.

p.s. I have deleted your comments from all my previous blogs too. They were worthless anyway. Now that’s better.

It is you Mardom-Dayous and other IRI supporter like you who are rats. No one support this regime but you Mardom-Dayous. If you want your comment to stay in a blog then go back to your cradle of the freedom country and leave it there. Deleted. Good riddance.

Bugger-Me I have deleted your comment. I know who this new user is. I am an arsehole you have changed your name to Bugger Me. You are blocked again. It was just a click, eezi  peezi.

Postman-Always-Rings-Twice I have deleted your comments. They were ok, but I was not pleased that you left three comments one after another and deleted the first two. Unfortunately because the third comment related to the deleted comments, I deleted than one too. Next time just leave one comment at a time.

I was very disappointed with the responses to my blog with so many unrelated comments. If we cannot focus on a subject in a virtual space, how can we do that in reality? The subject of my blog was very clear, I proposed a simple and valid question that if a lizard, a rat and a chicken raced which one would win?  There are so many factors affecting this, from the type of the ground, to presence of a cat in the vicinity. It could have been a good and very educational discussion but you guys turned it into another political mudslinging contest. You think everything has a political dimension. I am so disappointed, I am going to delete my blog : (

Dear Friends

by divaneh on

Dear Esfand,

Thanks for reading. Well, this is a considerate blogger who provides a bit of feedback to those whose comments are deleted. I think despite occasional discussion about the issue, it has never been seriously on the agenda, but it now seems that it will be dished out in a few months.

COP geraami,

Thanks for reading. I am glad you found it funny.]

Dear VPK,

Good to see you here.

AO Aziz,

That was very funny and that poem was spot on :). How I could I miss such an important group? May be because I see them less these days as they are busy clapping for brother Bashar who is killing the Syrians and whatever Palestinians in Syria. I am glad you have added it.

Divaneh Jaan, I think you left out this comment

what about the Zionists occupying Palestine and other Arab lands? AIPAC, Zionist, AIPAC, Zionist, AIPAC.  Iranians are much better off today than people in Somalia for example.  Let's boycott Israel.  I am boycotting them right after I finish typing this comment on my Intel powered computer.  I wrote a poem about Palestine the other day:

Palestine, Palestine, my love...

They keep complaining about human rights in Iran...

When you suffer under occupation...

The Zionists are taking your money...

And your women...

I love you Palestine...

Palestine, Palestine, Palestine...


Veiled Prophet of Khorasan

Absolutely right Fozolie

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


By the way it is already happening. There are blogs that I avoid becuase I know I am not welcome. The participants want agreement only. Without even blog control it is happening.

I was really against the comment remval idea. But [joking] I have second thoughts. In particular if you read the blog below you see how it moved off topic.


If I were the blog owner I would delete about 90% of the comments. They are off topic and do not in any way discuss the issue of the blog. Why do some people hijack blogs to their pet arguments. People if you got a peeve write your own blog!

Just too funny. 




Esfand Aashena

Divaneh jaan I think this may all be just a smoke screen!

by Esfand Aashena on

This was a funny blog but I thought the deleted comments would be gone with the wind and the blogger would not bother to say why it was deleted!  Did you have to go through the's trash bin to salvage these gems?!

On another note, I'm starting to think that JJJ is just teasing and trying to pit us against each other to debate this Freedom before Freedom of Speech concept which I outlined in more detail in this blog which was BTW belocked from further comments!

As we say in Farsi I think "he has put us on the job" and "my eyes does not eat any water" that we will ever see any changes, much less Comment Control!

I mean how hard it is to add a delete button to our blogs same as his?  He has had his since 2007?!  How long does it have to take?!  The year is almost over and soon it'll be the first year anniversary of him promising this illusive delete button!

Dear All-Iranians

Thanks for reading and your kind compliments.


Fozolie Geraami 


I agree with most your views and was very much against the idea. I
however have changed mind and think perhaps it is the next step for many of us
to tolerate others while we can choose to silence them. I think we just need to
wait and see it in practice.



I very much doubt it Divaneh

by fozolie on

The problem is the site needs moderation and JJ has never been a willing one. My prediction is that this site will divide itself into different special interest sections. But perhaps then those blogs will be ignored and the good stuff like this blog will shine / attract debtate.

Mr. Fozolie

مقاله ای بس زیبا و طنزانگیز. تشکر


Dear Mehrban

Thanks for reading and your encouraging words. Let's hope it is far from the truth.


Dear Friends

by divaneh on

Dear Fozolie,

 Thanks for your comment. As I explained to Anahid, despite looking at the lighter side of it, I am not against the user control policy. I however agree with you that if it stifles debate then a reversal will be in order. I feel that unlike Porteghal, the majority will show the necessary maturity.

Rahmanian Geraami,

Thanks for reading, I am glad you enjoyed it.

MPD Aziz,

I think your analysis is spot on and based on solid reasoning. That is one hell of super chicken.

Dear Rea,

Did you know the word "gullible" has been removed from the Oxford dictionary? It is a rare quality for one to be able to laugh at him/herself and a sign of strength of character. I also had a good laugh on your account if you don't mind. Thanks for your kind words and the link.

Dear Brother Majous,

Ensha'allah there will be a brother website god willing. We however keep it separate from sister website in accordance to our Islamic sexual segregation rules ensha'allah god willing. I still have not changed sex but if I decided to do so will announce it here and allow all interested parties to bid for an extra body part.

Dr Saadat Noury geraami,

Thanks for reading and your compliment.



This is so funny!!!!

Since when have you changed sex to a sister?

Hilarious, Divaneh

by Rea on

First I laughed at the "comments". But when I got to the end I laughed at myself, I'd actually thought it was all real.

Now, it's Porteghal's turn to laugh while reading my comment.


Multiple Personality Disorder

I think the chicken would win

by Multiple Personality Disorder on

I think the chicken would win the race regardless of the filed condition.  I think the chicken would peck the lizard on the head and eat him.  And, the rat would get eaten by a cat.  If there is no cat, the rat would seek shelter in the nearest hole he can find after seeing the lizard being killed by the chicken, and if the rat doesn't find a place to hide, I think the chicken would kill him with her claws.

I love ice cream, too. Seems like history keeps repeating itself. Dear Divaneh: Enjoyed reading the blog!



by fozolie on

Point well made. I can understand why Jahanshah is doing it but perphaps he should introduce an archive policy to save space instead of stifling debate. 

Mr. Fozolie

Anahid Hojjati

Dear Divaneh, despite liking your blog

by Anahid Hojjati on

I am not necessarily against the plan either. I have doubts but I think the Admin knows more than me about this and they want to do a good job so hopefully, it will work out.


Good analogy Faramarz

by divaneh on

Thanks for your compliment. That is a very good analogy and I hope as I explained to Anahid, we can prove a little more mature than your cuisine. I am sure he did not get any of that ice cream into his mouth.


Dear Anahid

by divaneh on

I am glad it brought you a smile. Despite poking fun at the idea, I am no longer against it. At least not until I have seen it in action. I think we can promote a culture of tolerance and hopefully deleting comments would be more of an oddity.


The Loonies Running the Asylum!

by Faramarz on

Smart and funny Divaneh Jaan!

This whole idea and your funny blog about it reminds of the time that one of my aunts gave some money to one of my older cousins and told him to take the rest of us, the younger cousins out and buy us some ice cream and keep us entertained. In other words, she put one juvenile delinquent in charge of a bunch of other juvenile delinquents!

The net result was that he bought us some sunflower seeds, kept the money, bought himself a double scoop of ice cream and we all got into a fight and rushed home and made a scene at my aunt's house!

I also liked few others very much such as the one where blogger writes that the commentator is very cheeky to have left a comment on his blog after he/she deleted blogger's comment from his/her blog. Thanks.
