1. It is amazing...I think right-wing groups are paying posters...

 

I mean, you get some nuts in any forum, but yahoo comment posters are completely racist, homophobic, sexist and downright brain-dead.

7. It's just that they seem to hop on and self-congratulate on riot stories way too often.

I'm singling out Yahoo because it's an easy place to illustrate how far the world HASN'T come.

Speaking of freepers, I can only imagine what RimJob's sack of clowns at that Mosaic relic of a site are saying about this story . . .

11. Agreed.

Read the comments in the Boston Globe or any city news rags. It seems like only the haters with nothing better to do make stupid and racists comments online.

Nothin' but bile and Cheeto dust, once again.

6. Eh, the name Yahoo should be a hint.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo_(Gulliver's_Travels)

Swift describes the Yahoos as vile and savage creatures, filthy and with unpleasant habits, resembling human beings far too closely for the liking of protagonist Lemuel Gulliver, who finds the calm and rational society of intelligent horses, the Houyhnhnms, far preferable. The Yahoos are primitive creatures obsessed with "pretty stones" they find by digging in mud, thus representing the distasteful materialism and ignorant elitism Swift encountered in Britain. Hence the term "yahoo" has come to mean "a crude, brutish or obscenely coarse person".

8. Youtube comments always give Yahoo a run for their money in terms of pathetic ignorance.

10. You got that right.

 

Anything having to to with any Kennedy, Obama, Clinton etc etc etc is sluge and not fit for human consumption. For some reason I can't post replies to these cave-dwellers is because YouTube keeps saying that I have an email problem (I don't) but I can't seem to sort it out.

12. There are definitely some (not all) malevolent and offensive comments regarding this incident.

 

However, it seems to me, that misses the point, for it was the incident that spawned the comments.

13. You mean the riot that broke out at the mall because Lil Wayne and Drake were there?



Oh sure, like the incident is NOT going to inspire racist comments?

15. From practically every single poster?

Doesn't give me much hope . . .

Turns out neither one were there, it was all just rumors.
