Racist/Idiotic comments

As regular readers have seen recently (and some times in the past) occasionally this blog receives idiotic and/or racist comments. I think we can all agree this should not be tolerated. Unfortunately I'm unable to just block stupid people that post here, so what am I to do? I can think of a few options and I'd like to know what you all think.

1. Only accept comments from people with a registered Blogger account
2. I go back to moderating all comments before they are posted
3. I leave all stupid/racist comments on the board
4. I delete all stupid/racist comments when I see them
5. Other????

So let me know what you guys think in the comments and vote in the poll to the right ------>

37 comments:

  1. i choose 3. so that we can see how idiotic or pathetic or racist or lunatic that person is. just my 2 cents. btw just love the website, keep up the brilliant job.

    1. The only reason I don't like that choice is I don't want this blog to become a bunch of bitch fights...

  2. Option 1... save yourself the headache. I don't mind registering. People will still be able to see your work but take away the anonymity and most of the moronic posting will stop most likely.

    1. But not everyone wants to register. I know there's been blogs, etc. I haven't commented on because I didn't want to register for yer another whatever it is...

    2. True, however for your own sanity I think it would be better to not see the racist etc. comments at all by having people register. Removing anonimity should at least significantly reduce the number of racist and/or weird/rude comments. If you look at the last month or so comment wise there's always only a select few people that post a comment anyway. Most of them are frequent commentors e.g. Fang, Zero, 3.5 etc.

      I think you are doing an awesome job and I can imagine that negative comments like the one that sparked this issue are what in the end will cause you to stop this blog. And that would be the last thing I want ;-)

      To make the first step I registered myself. Still anonymous but at least you can ban me now. ;-)

  3. Don't be a do gooder.Comments are just that. People are going to say what they want and I for one don't have a problem with that. What I have a problem with is other people censoring what people say. Think about it this is a site for people who like toe cleavage and feet. That maybe weird for other people to understand but would you want to be censored about what you like. Freedom comes with a price......always!

    1. I wouldn't be censoring most comments, just ones that I feel are over the top racist or attacks.

  4. I don't know why people have to comment if they don't like what they see. Just come back tomorrow and see what's new. If you don't like it, start your own blog and cater to your particular tastes.

    1. why? bcoz, this is a free world....

    2. But this blog is not a free world. It's my blog and I am the ultimate dictator when it comes to what is and isn't posted here.

  5. People will always have opinions, and since you are the creator of this great blog, I think you have the option of editing. However, editing will not change the minds of those who are inclined to share their disagreeable comments..... I personally enjoy the site because I love to see good looking women in high heeled pumps. I can spot one on the other side of an airline terminal and go out of my way to take a closer look. My wife wears them, and I always enjoy watching her walk....

    1. It's not to change minds; it's more to prevent overwhelming stupidity or attacks from being on my blog.

  9. Internet whether we like it or not, is a den of keyboard warriors and trolls. Feed them with enough attention and they go on an idiotic rampage, mostly in the form of insulting/racist posts. Don't let guys like these ruin what you made here, by giving them credit for any inconvenience they might cause now and then. Delete their posts and that's that! Keep up the good work mate!

  10. Idiots want attention so post racist comments to get that attention. It's working cause you've got a string of posts on it.. I say we ignore the idiots. Beta the joker can't get a real woman of any color to give him the time of date.. Calling women meat it very narrow minded boorish and outdated. .

    1. Funny you should mention that. Come back tomorrow....

  16. This is your sandbox #2, you should only play with whom you want. Just delete the idiots. There are no freedom of speech issues here, you aren't the government and you have no power to repress anyone outside these pages.
    Yesterday's exchanges didn't look like much fun. Most of the people here seem really nice and will constantly be calling out the assholes, leading to more and more confrontational days. Who needs that?

    1. Actually I had a ball with yesterday's exchanges with Mr. White Meat Only. It's soooo easy to debate stupid people...

  17. I vote for you screening the comments, as I would prefer not to read racist/ offensive remarks. I would probably no longer comment if I had to register.

    Quite frankly, I think you are giving too much attention to Mr. White Meat and his ilk. I think the protocol here is the protocol we were taught in grade school - ignore the immature, the bullies and the louts. Don't engage them. Don't give them more attention than they deserve as this only tends to help fill the voids in their lives and perpetuate their negative behaviors.

    Don't let them get under your skin, Number 2; this only gets them off. Just delete the comments and get on with your good work.

  18. Option 1, and capture bloggers IP address. Then pass on racist comments to the police.

  19. I'd say #2. #1 is possible, but if you want to eliminate ALL racist comments, the only way is to be a true overlord. I don't like the racist comments nor the people that post them, so I'd be ok with either 1 or 2.

  20. I've been coming to this site since its inception, and I've never understood giving negative opinions at all. Even when there is a chick that I don't care for, I just keep my mouth closed and wait for the next day. Number 2 gives us a great site without asking for anything in return.
    Thanx bro!!! Run it however you want to.

  21. Trolls like to get attention and cause offense/outrage/overreaction ... don't give them the satisfaction.

    1. Agreed 100%.. And Mr White Meat troll is sure trying his damnedest to stir things up. Reminds me of a little kid acting up to get mom or dad's attention...

      I say we ALL just totally ignore him/her from here on out and act like their troll post don't exist.

  22. Leave the stupid and/or racist comments alone. Idiots shouild have the right to speak their mind. The rest of us can filter what we read. You do enough without having to spend rime deciding what to keep and what to delete. Thanks for ALL the posts! You are doing a fabulous job.
