I still have no good answer, which is a pity, because I'm faced with the same dilemma again. The post I'm referring to is about three weeks old, and in fact is really a guest essay. Two days ago, somebody left a comment there that, like before, I think is valuable enough that I need to reproduce it here instead of leaving it unread there. As you will see, it also adds significantly to the debate on that guest post.
In full and unedited, here is that comment:
Jesus was a bastard.Or he was a myth created by paul and a declining roman empire.
You should be ashamed of your christist name D'Souza.You claim to fight for justice.
Do you have the honesty to give up the sign of slavery-your name D'Souza.
I would then be ready to accept your pretensions.

Speaking of valuable comments ...
... the ones you will find on this page are truly valuable. I would venture to say, they are even more valuable than the article and issue they are commenting on -- which are remarkable enough.
After all, how much more valuable can you get than this? -- "Though it is a rumour, we are proud of such rumours."
And no, I am not Deepak.
