Why the blogosphere gets dissed

A CapeCodTODAY.com story gets picked up without permission
Comments by our neighbors to the north are astonishingly bigoted and brutal

By Walter Brooks

We don't mind when other media pick up our stories as long as they offer a link to our online newspaper which will bring more traffic to us and thus help our local advertisers who support us.

The online site, Free Republic, did that, and we thank them.

But they did two bad things as well;

  1. They failed to include the writer's bio which contained links to his online newspaper, and
  2. Free Republic shows no reasonable restraint in censoring comments.

Here are a few of the juicier comments.

My fondest hope would be that a gigantic Canadian oil spill befouls the gay beach that the author frequents.

The whining liberal brain-dead Massachusetts sheeple are up in arms! OOOOO... so scary!

Omg... hilarious!! Going to wipe out all those snotty Massachusetts Moonbats if there's an oil spill.

Screw the gay pickled herring, or whatever they're trying to protect. Start sinking drill bits now. The herring will adapt.

Especially given the bloated, gaseous attitude of the writer, one canonly agree. Drill Baby Drill. Screw these juvenile pompous elitists.

For the oppressed socialists of Massachusetts the only sane solution tothis atrocity is mass suicides! Anything less would be tacit approvaland passive participation in genocide!

If you have the stomach for it, the purloined article and the rest of the comments are here.
