Re: “Good Morning, News: KOIN Kills Kommenting! Cops Make Dubious Arrests! Cuba Wants Gitmo Back!

The way news is un-anonymously shared and discussed over social media these days long ago made comment threads obsolete.

That's why I'm totally in favor of killing off the comments on this site, not to mention most of the commenters.

Re: “Come Shudder At This Video of Damage on the Morrison Bridge

This is a very informative post that somehow also includes the phrases "money shot" and "come shudder." Kudos!

Re: “Yet Another Serial Update: Prosecutor Speaks to The Intercept, Says 1999 Murder was a Case of Domestic Violence

If that's the Intercept's argument, then it's a stupid argument. I don't think there is any sleight of hand on anyone's part. It's correct to be concerned about the state's timeline - syncing Jay's testimony to the available physical evidence was the state's entire case.

The case also didn't need to be hyped - it's just a fundamentally interesting story: either Jay or Adnan is lying about Adnan committing murder. There can't be another explanation. Koenig believed that a focused new investigation could ferret out the answer.

What makes this case different than many murders is that Adnan (despite being totally guilty) has done a good job of consistently sounding like what we would expect an innocent person to sound like, but Jay also sounds pretty credible on the major points of his story, so the dissonance is fascinating, especially in the face of pretty competent cross examination (which usually exposes people lying about complicated, semi-verifiable things).

Re: “Another Arrest, and Jail Time, for Hunger Striker Michael Meo

Fuck this dumbshit egomaniac.

People in democratic societies thankfully don't make policy decisions based on which nut is crazy enough to publicly harm himself for some vaguely defined goal.

Re: “Portland's Threatened Pabst Lawsuit Fizzes Out For Now

It's not really about money, it's about protecting IP. Whether it's a good policy or not, there's a "use it or lose it" legal mentality to protecting trademarks. The City likely believes that if it allows a mild infringement today, a future less-desirable appropriator will throw such past knowledge/permissiveness (possibly successfully) back in the City's face.

Re: “Troll Hunter: The Commenter's Worst Nightmare

PSST STEVE: Set fire to the I, Anon blog and shitcan all comments on this site. Or are advertisers still dumb enough to pay mostly based on pageviews rather than uniques?

I know it's tough to cut the cord - I'd also enjoy the smugness of knowing that a tiny cult of obsessive, wrongheaded losers was paying a huge chunk of my bills every month.
