I quite often comment on articles in the online Daily Mail, but only about half of them ever seem to appear.

Also, the articles I most want to comment on, almost inevitably say 'we are not accepting comments on this article' mad.gif

Of course you're one of the Daily Mail commentators. Why am I not surprised you're part of the utter dregs of humanity that post there.



I don't typically comment on articles. Guardian comment section is really odd and the I doesn't have one. I've done one or two on Buzzfeed but it's a rarity.

Guardian always seems to be people quibbling about how something that's good is actually awful because it's not quite exactly perfect in their eyes on the political spectrum. That's most of what I bother reading, as newspaper comment sections are generally invariably trash anyway, written by people with a bone to pick and full of negativity. Never posted a comment on one of those in my life.

These days I find Youtube comments are more insightful about the state of the world.

Newsflash - it's not a crime to prefer traditional vales, rather than the flavour-of-the-moment PC ones!

These places always seem full of negativity and I actually think the Daily Mail/Express comment sections would make me cry for the sheer stupidity :') Don't even read newspaper articles much tbh, get most politics stuff from blogs/BBC and world stuff also from BBC.

I tend to avoid these comment sections like the plague and definitely haven't commented myself there before. If I had a strong opinion about something in the news I would probably just Tweet about it or post here.

The Daily Mail comment section is one of the worst corners of the Internet.

Definitely not a place where anyone who could be considered a 'snowflake' should visit. teresa.gif

[That was a general comment, not aimed at any individual here]

Aside from the comments of videos of comedy clips, I try not to. It's amazing how through progressive comments, a news story about a new scientific formula for the ideal fluffiness level of kittens can easily mutate into a discussion about how Hitler "done nothing wrong". I've even got a list of my top 3 least favourite types of commenters on news stories (and Nazis aren't even top 3).

I post more moderately here, and in the Mail Comments section, than I do in Usenet, but it doesn't seem to make a difference - people still take umbrage at comments that no-one would have batted an eyelid at 40 years ago.

Are you therefore claiming that a majority of posters here consider themselves 'snowflakes'? wink.gif

Thankfully we live in more enlightened times than the 1970s. Or would you prefer to return to a time when racism, homophobia etc. were considered normal?

Ridiculous hyperbole aside, people in the Middle Ages (which I assume is the period you were referring to) were actually much more concerned about personal hygiene that the popular perception, so the idea that they only bathed twice in their lives is very much a myth. Daily baths were frequent, if my knowledge serves me correctly.
