You mean, the quote from "I love your scones"?
I don't see that as an example of a useful anonymous comment, that wouldn't have been posted if it weren't for anonymity.
I didn't read the whole thing, but it seems to me like an example of an anonymous comment that doesn't rely on anonymity
However, I have show you quite a few. Let's open one
article and pick a few anonymous comments. The following are all from the same article, and that's because I simply glanced.
By glancing, I see it's a troll fest. Why would I or other people who actually have something useful to say waste time putting one useful comment among 10 long troll posts? That's why it's very unlikely you'll see me post on the main page, no matter what subject. And I'm pretty sure there are a lot of people like me.
Because this forum IS f***ed up.
Two of the new songs (from a very reliable source) are called, "Inmate Date" (Morrissey/Boorer) and "Play It Like You Mean It" (Morrissey/Street).
I've heard they are both really really good.
It is people like you and the Frady joke that make things f***ed up. You are full of shit of the finest order. The people who buggered off to "the other forum" are another fine example. Sick people, self obsessed, fake, urgent need to portray themselves as, when all they are as relevant as the guy who prostitutes himself towards them as if he is a trained monkey.
Disgusting. Opportunistically disgraceful.Shameful.Vile.Sickening.Unforgivable.
I read Billy Scissors forum posts and they were all so very gay with that "trying to be as witty as Oscar Wilde" feel but failing miserably at all attempts. I realised after discussions with others on here that the nickname Billy Scissors hides a weak persona too close to his mother who never knew his father. Furthermore I was told something very personal that this persona let slip by mistake probably when thinking a Solo girl was actually into him a bit and wishing to see him. Upon discovering that he blew his cover he placed a dirty white tennis sock in his mouth and screamed for an hour which gave him a hard on cause it reminded him of his stepdad holding his hand over his mouth when raping him during his schoolboy days.
Well, what does it for some will not do it for others......
Yes, gay and dumb as f*** the arse and suck the penis. Big deal, we know this by now. Did anybody say otherwise? No.
If you have a hammer then everything looks like a nail to you. lol
Is there a phrase book with ten or so sentences that is handed to homosexuals by the gay and lesbian community?
All of these comments are part of an article that have only 4 pages of comments. If you actually read the whole thing, my guess is that it's more than half just pure stupidity.
What I wanna see is one, just one anonymous comment that would otherwise not exist if it weren't for anonymity.
I think the forums are great, and I've learned a lot here, and I'm glad you keep this going, but I don't think I'll ever understand how is it that having comments about being "raped during schoolboy days" is good for anybody.
But hey, it's your site. If you think these posts are a good thing to have, that's your choice.
As for the Oscar Wilde quote, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't apply for the internets. You can log in, keep your mask on and talk shit gratuitously. But I'm pretty sure if that were the case, absolutely pathetic comments like the ones I mentioned above would drastically decrease we would all have a better website.
As for the "you can't please everybody" argument, who here would be honestly outraged if commenting anonymously was not permitted?
I would love to know.
