Last December, in response to a blog post I made about Graham Hancock’s foreword to Glenn Kreisberg’s book about an alleged megalithic culture in North America, a commenter posed as Graham Hancock and insulted the intelligence of other commentators, giving the impression that these insults came from Graham Hancock. This commenter was not Hancock, and the words did not belong to Hancock. I was not aware of the comment until the real Hancock called my attention to it this past weekend. The comment, and all responses to it, have been removed from the relevant page for violating my site’s terms and conditions. It is reproduced here as a screenshot, however, so that the context is entirely clear. I condemn in the strongest possible language any comments that attempt to mislead readers into believing they came from someone else, and I apologize to Hancock for the distress that the fraudulent posting has caused.
As most readers know, I am only one person, and I am not able to read and monitor every comment posted across the thousands of my blog entries. Some offensive or defamatory posts may make it through because of this, so I ask for your help. Please report any suspicious, offensive, or defamatory comments to JasonColavito@outlook.com or through my contact form for moderation or removal. I urge everyone who comments on my blog to please familiarize yourself with my site terms and conditions and to treat one another, and the thousands of silent readers who never comment, with respect.
