Some news sites cracking down
on over-the-top comments

Washington Post, by Paul Farhi

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 5/7/2014 7:56:54 PM

Attention, reader comment-board trolls: News sites are getting tough on your crude, your rude and your sometimes lewd postings. Faced with the unbounded id of anonymous readers who can’t resist posting nasty comments under online articles, some news sites are taking steps to rein in the verbal bile. And some, tired of the mess that occurs when free speech gets a little too free, are ending reader comments altogether. (Snip) Certain personalities, such as first lady Michelle Obama or former vice president Dick Cheney, seem to attract a disproportionate share of reader abuse. News organizations like reader comments because they foster

Comments:
Take this for what it´s worth folks....
Sounds like some marching orders have been put out ....
Orders that probably didn´t originate at the WaPo. . . .wink, wink..

Please note when editing that (Snip) is the form we use and that there must be a "space" on either side where it is used. If not, you run words together. LCom Staff.

I´m all for freedom of speech, but I am really offended by the anarchistic free-for-all often found in the readers´ comments sections of most sites (including one of my favorites, Breitbart). The rudeness, hostility and unnecessary vulgarity has no place in discussions of political and social issues. Another reason that I treasure Lucianne.com, which, as Ms Lucianne is wont to say, we have a salon and not a saloon.

Interesting how this came out the same time that the Obama administration is floating the idea of treating conservative sites as a PAC and regulate them.....never mind Chuck Schumer.

The websites listed in the article must have not had rules such as Lucianne.com has. The reason I appreciate this website so much is because of the dignity and diplomacy we commenters are expected to use. Before I started commenting here I read the comments eagerly after reading the articles, because I not only found that I was not alone in my thoughts about the subject but also I learned that there is another perspective besides mine that is valid. I was/am impressed with the high level of discourse that we have here. I always appreciate that we have someone monitoring the quality of dialog we have here.

On the other hand, I belong to a conservative site --tiny, tiny and obscure by Breitbart and Luciannne standards, and sometimes it feels good to just let go, let it fly at Lefties, but we all know one another, have been posting together for years and years, so no one gets offended --except the Lefties who wander in on occasion and spew their particular brand of bilge.

It´s not just at political or news sites, the maniacal behavior and fighting is everywhere on the internet.
The comments section of sports sites
deteriorate into fights over topics
that are not even related to sports.
My town has a Facebook page that is usually a good source of traffic info for commuters ,
local news, lost and found pets, etc , but, invariably
a fight will break out among posters over
subjects that were not originally
being discussed and the thread is hijacked.
Our local tv stations have weather blogs that routinely deteriorate into fights and insults and threats.
The only sites that are worth spending time are those that are strictly controlled
and do not permit trolls or thread hijacking.

Liberal web sites don´t like it when you point to the fake nature of the liberal coalition of gays + women + blacks. It undermines their very being. They will censor comments which challenge the unity of the coalition and not just those which are vulgar.

The unity charade is important for liberals. They will do anything to shut down scrutiny.

Despite not qualifying for 2014 World Cup, North Korea has reached the final, according to state media. Make sense? While the rest of the world is sitting tight in anticipation of Sunday´s Germany-Argentina tilt here in Rio, North Koreans have reportedly been told their country´s soccer team has been dominant at this summer´s event. A video posted to YouTube channel Korea News Backup, which features reports from North Korea´s state-run media, appears to show a newscaster reporting on North Korea´s fictitious success at the World Cup.

Obama played at a different club late last month with Tony Kornheiser, Wilbon´s sidekick on the sports show "Pardon the Interruption." Obama´s venue today was TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland. The club has a championship course on 220 rolling acres in Montgomery County.

A World Health Organization official on Thursday urged millions of Muslims making the pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, to exercise basic hygiene as mass gatherings pose risks of spreading the Middle East respiratory syndrome. The U.N. agency has recorded 827 cases of MERS and 287 deaths, mostly in Saudi Arabia. The virus is believed primarily acquired through contact with camels and spread among humans through body fluids and droplets. Hand washing and keeping away from coughing people are simple ways to prevent the virus´ spread, said Mark Jacobs, WHO Western Pacific region director for communicable diseases.

The conservative group America Rising is calling on the nonprofit Clinton Foundation to release documents about its spending after potential presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton disclosed she donated her six-figure speaking fees to the group. The list includes the foundation’s IRS Form 990 for 2013, which was required to be submitted to the IRS by May 15, as well as additional documents involving staff and expenses related to travel, events and celebrities. Clinton recently announced she had donated the money after complaints about the amounts of fees some cash-strapped universities paid her. “After mounting political pressure, Hillary Clinton chose to donate her near $2

Yes, that is the commander in chief shaking hands with a person wearing a horse mask in Denver. That was a little bit before someone in the crowd offered the president marijuana -- legal in Colorado -- which he declined, smiling. The horse picture, snapped Tuesday night while President Obama walked and greeted people on the streets of downtown, went viral almost as fast as it was clicked. Needless to say, the Internet had a field day.

Disgraced former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin was set to be sentenced by a federal judge on Wednesday on 20 corruption charges that could land him in prison for two decades. A jury in February found Nagin guilty of charges that include bribery, wire fraud, conspiracy, money laundering and tax evasion, all in the wake of hurricane Katrina. Nagin stirred national controversy with his erratic behavior after Katrina in 2005 breached floodwalls and inundated New Orleans, killing at least 1,500 people and leaving tens of thousands homeless. Prosecutors have asked for a stiff sentence of about 20 years, while Nagin´s attorney, citing his

A top White House official on Wednesday defended President Barack Obama’s response to the Texas border crisis and rejected the notion that it could become the president’s “Katrina.” “It doesn’t make sense to compare this to a natural disaster,” White House Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Muñoz said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about the Hurricane Katrina comparison. “This is a humanitarian situation that we have been on top of from the very beginning.” Earlier this week, Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, whose Texas district is situated along the U.S.-Mexico border, said he hoped Obama’s decision not to visit the

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer tore into President Obama on Twitter, calling him an “imperial POTUS” for failing to secure the border and allowing illegal immigrants to “overrun” the country. (snip) “Lawless decrees by the President demonstrate animus to Congress, states and the Constitution,” the governor said in a press release Monday. “It is outrageous, though not entirely surprising, that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has once again dealt a blow to Arizona’s ability to enforce its laws.”

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is calling attention to a Colorado woman who got a raise after Obama called for an increase in the minimum wage. Obama will have dinner in Denver on Tuesday with a woman the White House is identifying only as Alex. White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer says Alex´s boss voluntarily raised her pay the day after Obama´s January State of the Union address. That´s when Obama urged Congress to raise the federal minimum to $10.10 an hour. Pfeiffer says the raise allowed Alex to pay her rent and groceries without concern and says Alex wrote Obama to

"This is a global crisis in need of a global solution," Holder said. "The Syrian conflict has turned that region into a cradle of violent extremism. But the world cannot simply sit back and let it become a training ground from which our nationals can return and launch attacks." He warned that Western democracies cannot be passive. "If we wait for our nations´ citizens to travel to Syria, to become radicalized, and to return home,

One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace.

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate
