Because of the surge in traffic we’ve experienced over the last few months, we’re getting a lot of new readers who may or may not be aware of our comment policy. We think this explains the nastier tone we’ve noticed in the comments. If you are a new reader, please be aware that we have a certain standard that we ask our commentators to abide by.
Here are some examples of comments we’ve gotten that are not appropriate:
Thosewho think it’s acceptable for an anorexic drug addict to have a childare deluded idiots. Children are NOT ok for everyone. Please try toadmit that there are just some people who should not reproduce. If thiswere some welfare mom in the projects you would not be defending her.
actually i do not think that XXX is a beautiful child, she is like a little elf to me and looks spoiled.
I think it’s selfish of her to have babies at that age! Thereshould be an age limit to stop having babies! 47, is way over that age!I hope the twins don’t grow up to resent her.
Sweet mom"??!! Puh-lease!!!! How about taking the self-indulgentXXX AND her "celebrity baby ornament" off of celebrity-babies forgood?! I’ve been sick of her for years — she’s a flash-in-the-pan,&wouldn’t even have THAT status if it weren’t for her famous,publicity-status mommy. To sum it up in one word — BORING!!!!!!!
