Readers Note: Earlier today I posted KC Johnson Sends An Email.
I urge you to read it for the background information it provides for the post which follows.
A short while ago I received via email the following comment:
KC Johnson has left a new comment on your post "KC Johnson Sends An Email":
It is unclear to me what "email" the blogger who posts under the pseudonym of "John in Carolina" refers: I did not send him an email yesterday, nor did I send one to him today.
I did submit a comment yesterday, and, when that comment wasn't cleared, I took the liberty of resubmitting the comment--noting, as is clear from my wording, that I was sure there was a technical problem with its lack of posting.
I offer this comment merely to correct the factual error in this post regarding my having allegedly sent an email. But, as we all have learned over the course of this bizarre string of posts, it is no longer reasonable to expect factual accuracy from the blogger who posts under the pseudonym of "John in Carolina."

Folks, this from Blogger’s How do I moderate comments at my blog? page:
Enabling comment moderation then drops down an email form.Because I travel a fair amount I use Blogger’s email option which lets me moderate comments “on the fly” using a laptop in airports, hotel lobbies, etc.
This lets you moderate comments via email without affecting your regular comment notification setting. It is optional, since you can always moderate comments through the Blogger interface. (bold added)
So KC’s comment, like all reader comments, came to me in email form.
KC Johnson’s obviously very angry but I don’t see that in calling what he sent an “email” I did anything terribly wrong, much less “bizarre.”
If in the future I receive in email form a comment from KC, I’ll try to remember when referring to it to say “comment,” not “email.”
As for his sending me his comment twice, as I said in KC Johnson Sends An Email I received it only once.
KC recently explained his posting an horrendous comment attacking Joan Foster for which he was sharply criticized by saying he'd accidentally hit the Send button when he meant to hit the Delete button for the comment authored by Debrah.
As regards what he says is the first comment he sent me, perhaps he accidentally hit the Delete button when he thought he was hitting the Send button.
