Over the past couple days, I’ve deleted a few comments people thought I shouldn’t have deleted.
So, for everyone’s benefit, here’s a quick list of things you probably shouldn’t say/do:
1. The f-word, s-word, c-word, d-word. If you wonder out loud whether you’d say the word in front of an 11-year-old, find a thesaurus.
2. Make broad, sweeping allegations with no evidence to back them up. If you have something you’d like to say that we haven’t mentioned online or in the paper, email it to us. We’re always looking for tips. Bradford at peoplenewspapers dot com.
3. Sexualize teenagers. This is a direct remark on the ESD trial. You’re an adult; act like it.
4. You can disparage me all you want; I don’t care. Just don’t bring anyone’s family into things, or I’ll go Liam in Taken on you. (Note: This hasn’t happened yet during my tenure, but it’s only a matter of time.)
Also, don’t even think about bringing up freedom of speech. If you do, you really don’t know what it means. Read the Bill of Rights.
Now, carry on. Just with a lot nicer f___ing comments.
