Now I'm adding to the crap, by commenting myself on the commenting on the appropriateness of the comments...


Luckily, your crap is of a superior grade. Oddly, you're reinforcing the original point, wherein the commenting parties were asking the original poster to stay on the matter at hand, or at least make the effort to make the sly aside a complete ownership of the editor's bias. You want people to only comment in a way that reinforces the thrust of the original article. So do I, and so, it seems, do several others.
Let me put it this way: if the original poster could have mustered the strength to fight the compulsion to insert a Teflon (read: humor)-coated dig in the text of the article, none of this would be posted. Crap averted, lightening up unneeded.

But I digress.

You have missed the point. There are about 11 posts related to the in-appropriateness of the comment (not including yours and mine). The original comment was at least related in some way to the news on this site, whether or not it was biased is irrelevant. The viewpoints on editorial form are not and should take place elsewhere. This happens quite a bit, someone posts something and some people can't wait to jump on them and say "oh its inappropriate for you to say that" blah blah blah. And yes everyone is free to discuss what they like and I can ignore those threads but do people not come here to discuss OS news? Obviously not everyone.
