Who is Frank Stoner?

Postby HamsterArmageddon » Fri Feb 04, 2011 4:16 pm


Clutter and intentional obstructionism does ruin a reading experience. You might want to clean out the unserious semi-automated comments posted under fake 'real names' that are clogging up Blaska's Blog.

Forum is for caricatures, the article comment section is for serious discussion that can only happen under administered conditions and assignment of words to responsible parties. You might want to keep the two places separate and distinct because the two formats are starting to merge. Unless that's how traffic is driven and that's the point, in which case revenue is king.

If Blaska is the one posting under caricatures in order to appear like he is taking out stupid leftists for reader's amusement, than all of this doesn't matter.

From one caricature to another, this bong hit is for you Frank Stoner.

I think they try to do their best policing the policies on commenting on articles but at some point you just can't verify it well enough. Blaska wrote a whole blog about "James Jones". That's no less suspicious than Mr. Stoner. I may very well start commenting as "John Smith" or "Nancy Featherbottom" just to keep Joycie on his toes.

In my experience, admin is pretty good with this. There tends to be a slight delay before action is taken, however.
