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, another installment of Rejected Commenter Theatre, is after the jump. Of course, don't be afraid to let him have it in the comments.
In the three months since I last brought you a hilarious look at the wacky things stupid people say, I've noticed absolutely no change in the quality of comments submitted by pending Deadspin commenters. Thank heavens, because where else would I get fodder for another episode of erstwhile Deadspin Up! All Night feature Rejected Commenter Theater? Some of you have been funny, though. Heck, I added commenter MattinglysSideburns based solely on this tiny bit of humor. Still, there have been a bunch of stinkers and I want my opportunity to humiliate some of you folks who didn't make the cut. Here we go!
