QotD: Banning a user?
The vast majority of daily Hoboken411 readers absorb the articles but do not post in the comments section. Many also read the comments, but don’t log in and directly participate. It’s similar to how many people read the New York Times but don’t write letters to the editor. A couple readers have told me they don’t want to post because they don’t want to be in the line of long-time commenter strand tramp’s continuous fire. Frequent commenters complain of how strand tramp brings unnecessary cruelty into every thread. Others say they find strand tramp to be offensive but amusing.
Many say strand tramp has jumped the shark.
This week I got an unprecedented number of complaints and flags about strand tramp. I was forced to remove a comment or two that blatantly ran afoul of the community post rules. Strand tramp has been warned several times before. The nastiness that oozes from every post has grown tiresome to many 411 readers. Strand tramp has also (in the estimate of readers) been racist. Yesterday strand tramp was in “rare form,” calling other commenters names like idiot, dipsh1t, moron and limey, among many others.
The question is, do YOU think strand tramp should be banned, once and for all?
Have a happy weekend (strand tramp) and everyone else!
