Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the Slings and Arrows of outrageous verbiage. Or to take journalistic arms against a sea of profanities, and by opposing end them: to die, to sleep no more; and by a sleep, to say we end the heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks that reader’s eyes are heir to.
Could I state it any plainer?
Of course I can, and so I shall. It’s like this, for more than three years KC Confidential has sallied forth on a daily basis to give Kansas City and Lawrence readers a piece of our minds. And in turn, to allow them – you – to strike back, to poke our eyes when the spirit moves.
And while it’s obvious the vast majority of readers participate primarily by taking in what our writers write, make no mistake, KC Confidential comments section habitues often provide welcome, refreshing counterpoints readers enjoy.
That said, we’ve been remiss, arguably, in not keeping things halfway civil.
“smarmyman: your wifes a real ‘head turner’…yes she is..when she’s blowing the guy who you sold the nasty feces infected used hot tub she can turn her head…real well.”
Classy, right? Wrong.
Sorry H Man, time to clean it up a bit.
If need be, we’ll edit comments that loophole their way in, like this gem from smartman – who by the way manages to fly quite frequently on Greg Hall‘s sports site without using the “N Word” or any of the unsavory imagery he unleashes here – like the following:
“Gettin’ corn holed in the shower and having to blow your cell mate will make a guy look for ways to get out early.”
Look, this topic has been kicking around for a while. A couple of our writers actually moved on – really good writers – not because they couldn’t stand the heat but rather because they didn’t appreciate the crass, needless tastelessness exhibited by a few.
There are still plenty of ways to bag on Craig or myself without being ridiculously crude.
“Chuck and smartman are the perfect examples why comment sections on blogs like kcconfidential should be more tightly edited,” he begins. “Their bullshit give perfectly good stories and posted reviews negative connotations. If you can’t contribute intelligent thoughts or comments to movie reviews, sports or other posted stories then stay off the computer and deal with your mental masturbation by playing pocket pool instead.”
Allow me to say that both Chuck and smartman are standup guys who make significant contributions to this site.
So here we go, I’m gonna plug in a handful of obvious words – the F, N and C to name three – and we’ll go from there.
So if your comment doesn’t post right away, that’s probably the reason why.
