    Interesting article about posters commenting on the Boston Globe's online articles. One profiled posts under the name Xenophon....:razz:.

    Too bad they didn't profile the posters on the message boards before the message boards imploded...a certain WO would have been a good character study.

    People become very brave and often very rude when they can post behind the veil of anominity.

    That's really one of the reasons that places like these end up driving off serious posters who want to discuss issues.

    There's a lot of sick little cowards in the world who want to hurt people but who, in the real world wouldn't DREAM of saying what they're saying on the net.

    We all know what these people are.

    They're cowards.

    As the first PotY I am highly offended not to have been interviewed for this article. :evil:
    Interesting article but BDC's heyday has long past.
