To keep the comments as fresh and outstanding as they've been up to this point, we've commissioned Commenting Guru Rob Iracane to write a bi-weekly Comment Ombudsman column. It runs every other week. This is that week.
Mr. Iracane is the guy who approves and deletes comments around here, and the fellow to whom you should address any comment account requests, and he will explore issues involved in commenting, what makes a great comment thread, what's working, what isn't, answer your questions, so on. We want the place to continue to be as much fun as it is every day, and it's not an execution thread like our friends at Gawker do. We like to be inclusive here, because if we're not, we'd be forced to rely on our own wit and knowledge, and that's a scary thought indeed.
So here's this week's column, about the notion of you and your inability to watch YouTube videos ... after the jump. Of course, don't be afraid to let him have it in the comments.
From time to time, Deadspin gives us a little treat in the form of a viral video clip. Maybe it's a slow news day, maybe it's a gem of a YouTube video with someone getting hurt in a hilarious manner, or maybe it's a Stephon Marbury interview that leaves us completely speechless. No matter what, our video sommelier always offers us a refreshing and satisfying clip to accompany the usual Berman sighting or mascot run-in.
