Here is the ADN's promise to clean up the vile comments from January:
When we see them, we will delete comments that are off topic, crude, attack other posters or are part of an apparent campaign to spam the boards with messages. We will ban users whose comments are particularly egregious, those who show a pattern of unwillingness to follow the rules and spammers. We will continue to allow critical comments about public figures and subjects of stories, but we will not allow crude comments about them or their personal lives.But despite the January promise to delete crude comments about public figures, the ADN still allows vile comments about Sarah Palin. Here's a few comments about Sarah Palin -- and her children --collected from this weekend:

Oh, sorry about my previous post. I now realize Sarah was busy listening to Levi and Bristol practicing abstinence in the bedroom of HER home. (See Levi's commments @ bedroom) Guess that's why she couldn't read the Stimulus Package.
I wonder how quick the ADN is to delete crude comments about The Messiah.
As for this blog, my readers know I allow a wide range of comments. Unlike Doughtery and the ADN, I never promised to delete crude comments... I usually delete profanity or spam but that's about it.
