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, featuring Rejected Commenter Theater ... after the jump. Of course, don't be afraid to let him have it in the comments.
In an effort to educate those of you who wish to become commenters, to entertain those of you who are already commenters and possibly to offend everyone in the process, I give you Rejected Commenter Theatre. Every day, tens upon tens of Deadspin readers audition to become commenters. My job as combudsman is to sift through these pending comments and separate the hilarious wheat from the tedious chaff. Today, I will present that chaff and attempt to reveal my reasons for rejecting it. Let's go!
