Forums or online article comments associated with a lot of newspapers have gone the FB login route. The comment section for the Phoenix paper was similarly out of control before they did that.

Here's what you missed by not going on the eforum.

Racism. Sexism, gun nuts, bragging liars, anti-gay, creationists bible thumpers, pathological narcissism, venomous hatred for any person verbalizing liberal views.

But to know why it's being cancelled follow the money, not the words.

They lost control of the commercial and advertising links in the spam posts.

Like the idiot who thinks he's a cow?

The RJ is certainly OK with "racism, sexism, gun nuts, bragging liars, anti-gay, creationist bible thumpers, pathological narcissists, and venomous hatred for any person verbalizing liberal views" Just look at their editorial pages.

But lose a couple bucks of revenue stream? Oh hell no! Now they're going to have to charge restaurants more to write favorable reviews about them.

Oh, I forgot another example of what can be found over there. People with very little education or understanding of political systems who comically and inappropriately throw around terms like fascism, nazism, socialism, statism without actually knowing the meaning of them.

That's because anything that doesn't pass muster with Lord Rushbo is socialism, don't you know. These are people who are only interested in being told what they want to hear. The RJ obliges them, much to the detriment of our community.

Can't hide behind an anonymous username that way.
