Washington Post turns off comments on blog
The WashingtonPost has indefinitely shut off the ability for people to post comments on its blog because of “objectionable postings”.
The company policy was to ban comments that were personal attacks or used profanity or hate speech.
“Because a significant number of folks who have posted in this blog have refused to follow any of those relatively simple rules, we’ve decided not to allow comments for the time being,” Jim Brady, executive editor of Washingtonpost.com, wrote on the subject.
Welcome to the world of blogging WaPo, get used to it!
