For the second week in a row, Mads has been mentioned in the Misc for the controversial comments that readers have posted lately.
A section of this week's staff editorial reads:
"The fighting continued on a campus blog, where news that the [VSA] had passed the Kick Coke resolution quickly degenerated into a series of hateful charges, among them disparaging references to “a bunch of activist slime” and “Communist assholes,” referring to the organizers of the Kick Coke campaign. Although these attacks were posted anonymously, specific students were targeted and ridiculed by name."
True, some commenters did get out of hand. But then: "Clearly mass anonymous e-mails and anonymous blogs are an ineffective way to engage in political discussion."
Is the Misc dissing the commenters or Mads? It's unfortunate that some comments went so far, but we think it's good that students are so vocal and we're glad we can provide an opportunity for them to be so.
