links for 2008-07-31: Comment Conundrum
Brilliantly written. “If we attempted to pass a law preventing you from saying something terrible, that would be censorship. If you showed up in our living room attempting to say the same thing, we’d have the right to throw you out.”
Fantastic insights on comment moderation from a practitioner. “Some reporters might get upset that someone says their writing sucks, but that’s tough cookies for them. Fair comments about our job is allowed, unfair remarks about us as human beings is not”
Point-by-point stories to go with my original list. Fantastic.
