As I had reported before, Andrew Breitbart's newest Big site, Big Peace, lacked any comment moderation, allowing commenters to flame critics of their rightwing propaganda. Here is an example:
Since my initial article yesterday, things have changed:
Notice the insult at the top of the comment? On top of that, look at what Jamesb wrote - he claims that after making a mistake, I backed up my comments and then continually apologized for Islamic extremist terrorists, which is far from the truth. After admitting my mistake, I still stood by the point of my original comment, and I did not apologize for Islam - I defended it from the countless baseless smears found on the site.
I also thought it was funny that Jamesb felt the need to reference his "LOVELY girlfriend." If you are wondering what I had written prior to his response, here it is:
I was referring to his vulgar "prick swallowing asshole" comment. I thought I would have a little fun at his expense, but apparently he felt a need to defend his sexuality on an online message board. Go figure...
Here is another flame in response to another commenter:
After reviewing previous posts by CP7768, I could not find one thing that would warrant such a comment - CP7768 was responding to Jamesb's flame against my comment where Jamesb called me a "dickhead."
Anyway, now that Big Peace has added a report button, I will be doing some notification to hopefully get discourse on the propaganda site to a somewhat respectable level - getting it to an intelligent level is a completely different project.
I will keep the world updated. Oh, and to not be hypocritical, I had deleted my comment that may have been taken offensively.
Jamesb is a flagrant violator. On July 17th, he called me a f-er and other choice words. I have complained and to date, nothing has been done. If you will give me an e-mail address, I will send you the links. Love you cite. HuskersLoveBoReplyDelete

So far, only one comment has been removed by the administrator, but not the more offensive ones. I frequently check back and nothing has been done - I even reported the comments multiple times hoping to grab the moderator's attention.
I keep thinking to myself that my insistence is petty, but then I am reminded that I am only following their standards (which they do not follow). If you give them an inch, they won't stop until they are miles away...
