T-S to clean-up comments
Readers may have noticed that the Times-Standard is ditching anonymous comments on its website and will require a Facebook account for anyone who cares to leave on-line feedback.
The Humboldt Herald welcomes this improvement. It doesn’t take many forays into the T-S comments section to realize the internet has so much more to offer than the bile anonymously spewed there.
Such sentiments from an anonymous blogger are sure to raise hackles of those who suffer elevated blood pressure from the existence of the Herald. But let us recall the oft-stated differences between this g*dd*mn f*cking blog and the proper, official, totally legit outfit that is the real newz. Those reporters have names, phone numbers and offices where their professional hind ends can be contacted by people who care to deliver a grievance. This blogger does not. Feel free to spew away in the comments section below — they might even make it past moderation standards.
Maybe the new requirements will encourage more readership — and even participation — in the T-S comments section. Perhaps this blogger will even check them out when time allows after slogging through the brilliant anonymous commentary left here.
