I recently came across some comments inside our website that were not approved for publication. Between you and me, I like to approve comments that other people have rejected (as long as they're not vulgar), especially if they're critical of me. I found a couple gems the other day. You can find this comment in thrice under Tim Staudt's blog post titled "Texas Tech in Disarray." It's from Paul in Grass Lake:
"Not to go off-topic here, but I think Tim should walk if WILX ever tries to pair him with Jason Colthorpe again. It's bad enough WILX viewers have to be subjected to Jason's rude and obnoxious behavior during the regular newscast; to have to endure him during a Tim Staudt sports special constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. WILX, MAKE IT STOP!!!"
First, Paul in Grass Lake probably posted this three times because nobody approved it and he was waiting to see it. But since Paul in Grass Lake can't get the spelling of my name right, I'm going to assume he just doesn't understand how the "submit" button works.
Second, I'll give you obnoxious-- my 7th grade science teacher Mr. Nemcik would agree wholeheartedly with you there-- but show me rude. And Tim would never "walk" because I'm the only one who laughs at his jokes. I do Iike the "cruel and unusual punishment" line-- that's good.
Paul in Grass Lake also left this little gem under another post by the Dean:
"I'm serious...Jason is a tool."
Now that's just mean, man. By the way, you leave this comment under a story titled "A Christmas Story" about a guy battling cancer and I'm rude and obnoxious? Why don't you include "magnanimous" the next time you talk about me, Paul in Grass Lake.
Editor's note: Critical comments like this really don't bother me, so fire away!
