  2. … such is the ‘progressive’ Internet ‘revolution’ in practice. I mean, those sorts of online comments are part of what actually is done on the Internet.

    Often people don’t put much thought into what they say on here, and there often isn’t much personal accountability. At the same time, there is some bluntness and openness in those sorts of comments; but it all doesn’t go very deep, a lot of the time.

    • @T. B.,

      It’s often just crap heard on Fox News or right-wing talk radio repeated ad infinitum as if the more repeated it gets the more truth it carries.

  3. The question becomes, why do online editions of newspapers allow comments at all? It’s not like the public is lacking in virtual venues to bitch or vent about what they’re reading.

    • @Todd,

      That is a good question, isn’t it? I remember reading somewhere that newspaper comments are especially vile because there is very limited moderation as newspapers are swarmed with complaints if they moderate more strictly (like bloggers tend to do), hence, more !@#$.
