    Do you really think out-of-line comments of a commenter on a blog are worthy of the same attention as a mass-murder of 6 year olds in CT?

    Usually I respect your opinions(although I disagree with most)

    But not here.

    20 kids are dead in connecticut.  I read the comment (which was roundly condemned for being over the top and violent--although the author did explain himself in subsequent comments).

    No one threatened you personally.  HR the thing if you wish and comment on it.  But a whole diary when THIS is going on????

      ...it wasn't roundly condemned.

      It was supported by... let's see... 32 people, at this point.

      This is a good thing to you?

      How am I to know he did not mean it when he used the words "put a gun to the head?"

      I think it's probably only an idle threat -- but it is a threat, nonetheless.

      Do site rules only apply sometimes?  I mean, surely, that's not the sort of thing you advocate?

      Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?

      •  well, goon--sometimes I go on the I/P threads (0+ / 0-)

        (which are as fiery as these) and I see some vile comments that get 20 or 30 recs.  SO what do I do?  I hide it if it's bad enough, chastise the poster, and move on.  

        Yeah, it was an extreme comment.  It was also in the heat of the moment after 20 KIDS GOT KILLED.  So one might expect emotions to run a bit high.  No one's threatening you ...or anyone else on here.  Get over it, write the admins if it upsets you that much, and think of the kids rather than useless blog posts.

          ...I think that you should report every single comment that gets as vile as the one I've referred to here.

          They have no place on this site -- they are directly in contradiction of site rules.

          I can understand why you find it tedious having to report it every single time with no real response -- as was this case -- but if we don't, who will?

          If no one speaks out, will it ever get better?

          Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
