Commenters: Your Word Arrows Sting

The latest round of T. Rogers vs. J. Schutze did not and does not concern me. But I did read Schutze’s post and got my feelers hurt by some of the comments thereafter. I’m sensitive like that. Someone named “space” wrote:

If nothing good comes out of this, perhaps this city will realize that the DMN never utters a word without an agenda and that “D” is just crap. I’ve said it before elsewhere and I’ll say it again here now, reading Frontburner is like eavesdropping on the breakroom in a Park Cities hair salon. It’s horrible.

First of all, I imagine eavesdropping on the breakroom in a Park Cities hair salon would be pretty entertaining. Secondly, who is this “space” man? I know he also goes by “Steve” and that he reads (and comments on) the Advocate‘s blog. Thirdly, the topic of “Comments on Blogs: Allow Them Or Not” is an interesting one. “Space,” “whatever,” and other anonymous commenters make a good argument for keeping FB comment-free for now.
