We warned you…

I warned you. The others warned you. Now you guys have screwed it up for everyone else… which is how it seems to go everywhere.

Morning Reads are going to remain open threads… for now. We have culled three of the worst offenders. Two of them didn’t think before they posted. The third didn’t learn to ignore them, after being asked to multiple times.

We can, and will, cull more if we need to. We like opinions. We like a spirited debate. What we don’t like is threadjacking, proselytizing, and people pretending their words don’t have reprocussions. If you don’t like something, ignore it. If it is offensive and demeaning, send us a note through the tip line. I don’t want a note every time your thin skin starts to itch, only if there is blood.

If you feel that your culling is without merit, let us know why… through the tip line. If you don’t give us clear reasons, or just rehash what we have already told you about it will be ignored.

Basically, stop being assholes to each other. This isn’t the AJC comment section, we can and will get rid of it. Even if it means shutting everything down.

Oh man, we used to have the most knock-down drag-out fights on Peach Pundit back in the 2000s. And then we’d all come back and debate the next day’s posts.

Of course, skin was much much thicker back in the day.

Thank you for moderating the comment section. If you want random spew, you’ve got youtube. It’s nice to be somewhere that enforces rules.

One point of order for DD. I subscribe to the AJC and they have absolutely cleaned up the comment section for 2019. You can only post using your Facebook profile and since most stories are behind the paywall there are few commenters and the quality has improved, at least temporarily.

several places i used to enjoy commenting from time to time have gotten rid of their comment section altogether in the past few months…even places where you wouldn’t really expect it to go south, like the golf channel’s website have dropped the comments…

I decided to check back into GaPol at just the right time. Maybe I can now go back to having this site as a regular daily check in.
