The Kid can’t take the heat

Score one for the good guys. After two (just two!) blog posts on “The Epoch Times”, The Kid has decided that he can’t take the heat in the comments section. People pointing out his logical fallacies are, in his words, “trolls.” He even says that “Ren” has threatened him online without offering any kind of evidence, natch. Even better, the kid tried to scrub his comments and ended up looking like an even bigger tool.

Since The Kid can’t edit or ban commenters using the Disqus commenting platform, he has announced that he is not allowing any comments on Epoch:


“All – comments under The Epoch Times version of this post have been closed due to ongoing abusive and harassing comments from certain trolls. Sorry to anyone who has been following the rules and lost comments in the process. From now on, please comment on articles here at AI and not through The Epoch Times website. Comments will be closed on all future Epoch Times posts. Thank you.”

That’s right. Several of us went over to tell him that his “honeymoon” with Brian S. “BS” Hooker was over, and he got all in a huff. We’re sorry if we ruined your holidays, if you do holidays, kid. (He seems too angry to believe in anything having to do with joy.) What were the “abusive” and “harassing” comments? Well, The Kid may think that the comments are gone, but that’s not how the internet works, is it?

The comments are all here! You can even comment if you want.

In a way, I understand The Kid’s anger. He has been used to echo chambers like Age of Autism. When that echo chamber wasn’t there in Epoch, he decided it was better to go back to his WordPress-hosted blog and enjoy the deafening silence of that echo chamber. (Silence? Yeah, 99% of the comments there say nothing.)

Speaking of douchebags, keep up the voting. Bob and Andy are tied at this very moment, with BS Hooker coming up from behind. It’s going to be a close vote.
