Howdy Y'All, This Here's The Comment Sheriff


So we see here there's been some bullshit with goddamned dicklickers showing up here trying to stir up no good in our comments section, forcing me to go in and kick some lard ass all goddamn morning.

Until you fuckers can behave your asses, the comments on this here blog are being moderated by yours fucking truly. And when the real lard-ass losers on this here blog slink back into their prairie dog holes and leave the rest of these here fuckers to snark in goddamned peace, maybe we'll review the current goddamned policy.

Fuckers.

    Thanks Comment Sheriff! Man, for all of the policing you have to do around here, you sure do deserve a break! How about taking the fam to a nice vacation to SEA WORLD, or what about a coffee break with a hot, steaming McCafe? Why, is that a Dickie's uniform you're wearing? Loves it! I bet I can get one just like it (in pink!!!) at Dickies.com!!!

  4. Awww, Sheriff. Why you're kinda cute, now aren't cha? There's a whole lotta lady I'd like to introduce you to if you don't mind a long-distance relationship. Russian Girl? You mangy little minx. Drop that goat teat for a sec and get on out here and say hello to the man!
    (We may have our first RBNS wedding to plan!)

  5. Poor whittle Julia cannot event manage to snark anonyously on blogs right..FAIL.com!

  6. You handsome. Has Russian Girl checked you out??

  7. Here is full transparency and then let's just carry on, shall we:

    There are two Jacys. A morning Jacy and an evening Jacy.

    One of the Jacys, me, the one typing, was once involved in an e-mail group of like-minded people who were astonished by JA's antics. We have since become friends, sharing personal and professional information as friends do and arranging to get together in real life. And so it has been a simple process of elimination to determine who's been repeatedly harassing us with personal information. It's either someone who was once part of that group or someone who is a psychic.

    As for Baugher: Baugher and I are in touch on a fairly regular basis, sharing war stories about some of the very same people who have subjected us to abuse and threats. We are huge Baugher fans here, and she returns the compliment. So that little bit of information is, in fact, totally untrue.

    And that's all.

    Thanks Comment Sheriff.

  8. Still waiting for the personal response to my e-mail, J.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wow, I guess I missed some shit in the last post....so um "LAAAAAAAAAAAME" retracted. Carry on. Oh and, tell me what happened. Someone posted your personal shit? Dayum.

    ReplyDelete
  10. shit, what did i miss last night? what went down to warrant a comment sheriff? ... guess i have to go back and read through all the comments.

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's so cute that RB.RBNS feels entitled to a response from Jacy. That seems so familiar. Do we know someone else who has entitlement issues?

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's also adorable my comments will only be visible after APPROVAL. Oh Jacy, you minx.

    ReplyDelete
  13. So if there are two jacy's, then we only know that one of you did not comment on mary's blog?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I also dont remember seeing anything person in nature about, Ms. J.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What kind of a crazy ass would turn this blog into a commenter battleground? We are all just here to diss JA. How sad must you be to turn it into a commenter shitshow? Makes sense that it's likely just one or two unhinged people, because everyone I know who reads this blog ... about 20 of us ... just do it for the laughs and are really sick of the trolls who show up on the attack all the time. Seriously, what has TJ ever done to anyone other than show up here a lot and comment. And yet the troll has been after her more than anyone, so it totally makes sense that it is some weird personal vendetta.

    I don't even think it's JA and her pals, that's the weirdest thing, and just shows you how crazy whoever it is must be.

    I support the comment moderation until the snake slithers back into her hole.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Anon1:32: I asked the other Jacy if he/she had posted to Mary's blog. He/she said no.

    RB.RBNS: No one here owes you or anyone else any explanations about how it works. We're not on the cover of Wired, we're not bleating at you to read, we're not a business asking for your money, etc etc. We just set this up for fun, just as all the other rebloggers have, as just as all the other rebloggers do, we prefer to keep some information to ourselves. Just as you do, right?

    This is as much disclosure as can be provided based on the wishes of everyone involved here.

    So let's just carry on, shall we?

    ReplyDelete
  17. ugh, i still don't understand what happened, after reading the heavily redacted previous posts. how did this place turn into animal farm?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm all for comment moderation.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I will kick ass with impunity, fuckers!

    ReplyDelete
  20. RB.RBNS would be a cool reblog too if it were ever updated.

    Damn. Why does the internet have to suck this week?

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's hilarious that you Jacys think you are entitled to some kind of personal privacy as you run a blog dedicated to invading Julia's.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is the first comment I have ever written and it's to agree with Fuck Camping -- if someone could clarify what happened it'd be much appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am thankful for the Comment Sheriff too.

    Full Disclosure: I was part of the original email group with Jacy 1 that existed prior to this website.

    I am not a writer nor a moderator nor "idea maker" for this site. I have no administrative abilities. I'm just snarky like the rest of you.

    I'm honest. I've treated all of you with respect. I'd like the same in return.

    ReplyDelete
  24. FormerGawkerEmployeeMay 20, 2009 at 2:00 PM

    In all honesty, I don't know why you didn't do this a long time ago. Baugher has it right; she has never allowed comments at all and if you guys opted to go that route, I would totally understand it. You clearly have some crazies on your ass who aren't going to go away until they wreak even more havoc.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have to agree with FGE: having gone through this myself I'll tell you right now that vengeful trolls do not just go away. Once they decide to destroy your site and anyone associated with it, you are stuck with them forever. You'll basically have to keep this blog moderated from now on.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Let me get this straight.
    The Reblog of Reblogging NonSociety is up there waiting for a "personal response to their email"?
    Okay, Jacy 1, kill this comment if you want to but that is mental.
    Why would anyone related to this site waste their time responding to an email from a site that attacks the content/commenters on this one?
    Just because your goddess Julia maniacally responds to every little thing ... "what a strange thing to write" ... (vom) and is on constant spin control over her "business" site and her shitass "brand", does that mean any other blog should use that self-obsessed tail chasing as a model for interacting with readers? Egad. Please no.
    RBNS is not running a business and is therefore not "accountable" to anyone in that regard. RBNS is not a self-proclaimed brand like Julia Allison and has therefore has no identity/persona (or whatever the hell her word of the day is) that needs defending.
    RBNS does not trade-in on its site hits or notoriety to accept swag in return for tween screes with x's and o's and multiple exclamation points!!!!!
    RBNS, in other words, is not NS and there is no basis for comparison between the two. So why would RBNS suddenly start going all "Julia" and reply to known "haters". Sure it's one of JABAs favorite pasttimes (it makes her smile) but why should it be Jacy's?
    As a reader/commentor I'd suggest you might not want to hold your breath waiting for a response RB.RBNS. If I was Jacy (and I so ain't) I'd send you right back on the horse's ass you rode in on. See link.

  27. well, I doubt my version would be approved, so I am going to have to wait.

    Yes, I was here for all of it.

    Also, RB, it was revealed that Baugher does not like jacy...uhm would that be jacy one or two?

    ReplyDelete
  28. @FormerGawkerEmployee

    Because that was the whole point of this blog. It was founded as an outlet for people whose comments were getting deleted over on nonsociety's "forums" - remember? It was never Baugher-esque in wit or charm. It is and always was all about the commentators.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha. Maybe TJ will be interested in that thing Meghan was talking about before. What was it? Reputationdefender.com?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awww comon; the comments section is the best part of this blog! That would suck to disable comments just because of a few self-righteous weirdos who come in here from time to time and get their jollies from poking fun at people all here poking fun at Julia Allison.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Anon 1:55: You have GOT to be kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  32. WHAT PRIVACY 1:55? Are you OUT of your fucking gourd?

    O.... m.... g.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes, I agree with PP, you will have to monitor this site from now on.

    Vengence is some long-lasting shit.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Dearest PP:

    The internet does NOT suck this week, now that Life On Blast is live and shitting on every aspect of NS.

    I miss you on Twitter. haha

    Um: WTF happened here?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've said it before -- the comments are what gets people to come here. It's the community as much as the content (exactly what Julia wanted to cultivate with NS but never did).

    ReplyDelete
  36. Baugher has no issues with anyone associated with this blog. That was something that was fabricated for reasons no one understands.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Alana

    I'll e-mail you so you get the truth

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm just here to say that whatever this constant auto refreshing thing on pages with comments is HAS GOT TO GO. It's like giving me a seizure. I had to turn off the status bar in IE and it's still like flashin away up there in the tab. wtf! Fix dat shit.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Life on Blast? I went there an all I saw was basically some videos including the kid after the dentist from like 2 months ago.

  40. "It's hilarious that you Jacys think you are entitled to some kind of personal privacy as you run a blog dedicated to invading Julia's.

    May 20, 2009 1:55 PM"

    Anon, this blog doesn't comment on anything that Julia herself doesn't put on the net and therefore make public. To suggest this blog is invading her privacy is absurd.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am getting the auto refresh too. FIX IT SHERIFF!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i've also experienced auto-refreshing in IE, not in firefox though.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Im sorry Jacy, but this really sucks. Why do you have it set to approval?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wow. What the hell went on here? Anyone care to explain what triggered this?

    Jacy - I'm sure you have your reasons and I respect your right to make decisions about how to run your blog, but I personally think that pre-approving or deleting comments is a terrible decision. This blog has thrived mainly because of its lively commentators. Even if you approve the majority of comments, just the threat of deletion or censorship is enough to really stunt the conversation. What's the standard for what gets deleted? Or is it just completely arbitrary?

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's midweek before a long weekend, folks. I say we need a pitcher of margaritas, a roof, and an ac/dc cd. It'll be the perfect Hug A Commenter party.

    Whaddya say? Love, everyone. Relax! It's just teh intarwebs.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nice, this was needed around here.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Let's keep our eye on the ball here people. On its best days, RBNS is funny!

    And it's target is not just this woman Julia Allison. It's this preposterous, arrogant, web 2.0 idea of what is or isn't journalism/good writing/ good new media that this jackass represents.

    I object to the idea of NS and how JA executes it. I object to this know-it-all attitude that says because it's new and on the internets it's worthy of making money, so give me mine. I thrown facebook and twitter and other web 2.0 incarnations that have no real revenue plan - but a ton of superior attitude - in that same boat as NS.

    I make fun of Julia and her dumb sposnors who still beleive, all evidence to the contrary, that eyeballs=influence, and therefore should equal money. I don't like JA as a new media phonom because she has no repect for real journalists and writer - and I am one of those.

    This high school stuff here on this site, where people are trying to, what, exactly? Out each other? Out each other as commenters here? It's creepy and immature - unless this rb.rbns person has a vested interest in Nonsociety - and then it's funny again! Coming here to wage battle one-on-one with the evil haters!Saving the princess! COunter insurgency! Draaaama! That's actaully funny.

    I say the best policy has always been website commandemtn 1: ignore the trolls.
    This site already has the ability for the Jacy and Russian Girl to erase way out of bounds comments. Let' snot freak out here,and hire a hall monitor. Let people speak. Let people be dumb. Sometimes stupidity leads to the funniest smartest comments here. Let all the poppies grow so to speak....

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think the standards are to avoid this:
    - cut and paste spam
    - commenters attacking other commenters
    - commenters attempting to "out" other commenters or the blog contributors

    Jacy, am I wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hey anon: If that's all you see on Life On Blast then it is obviously over your head. A channel of my own videos? A full on social network with message boards? Video, audio, and text commenting? Ride Shamu and kiss my ass! It shits all over NS, and obviously you as well.

    xoxo BUNNIES

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dammit, now I'm curious as to what happened last night. But I'm all for censoring the trolls as long as every other comment gets posted.

    ReplyDelete
  51. It's pretty obvious that the standard is any time someone tries to OUT the identity of an otherwise anonymous commenter, their comment will be deleted.

    I think that's it, right Jacy?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I totally support you all in this but my curiosity is peaked too. Wish we could get a little more info about what went down. But I have no problem with moderation. Although just to be NON-NS-like it might be good to post a moderation policy that explains what type of comments get through and what doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Well hey there little lady 2:29! That's it exactly, sugar!

    1. Spam

    2. Commenters kicking other commenter ass for no goddamned reason

    3. Commenters being goddamned psycho by trying to reveal the personal goddamned business of other dicklicking goddamned commenters, sweetcheeks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow Alana you clearly know how to cultivate an audience for your site/sight/cite.

    ReplyDelete
  55. @Anon 2:29 - I understand why blatant spamming and commentor "outing" shouldn't be allowed. But I think there's a real issue with banning "attacks" on other commentors. What constitutes an attack? Surely we should be allowed to disagree with one another. Surely disagreements will occasionally escalate and people will probably be rude and mean to one another. This is unfortunate and unpleasant, but do we want to start policing it? It's a very subjective endeavor, and a very fine line between deleting "attacks" and simply deleting whatever the moderators dislike.

    Until one of the moderators makes explicit rules about what is and is not permitted, comment deletion is capricious and unwarranted

    ReplyDelete
  56. My mistake - I wrote that last comment before I saw the Comment Sheriff's post.

    I suggest those rules be posted prominently on the site somewhere, maybe in the sidebar. Also, "kicking other commenter ass for no goddamned reason" is not an workable standard.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ya know, I have my own opinions on anonymous commenting in general but on a site like this it makes sense. When I first started reblogging these bitches I too was only under the handle Scary Mary. Why? I didn't want to taint the good name of my other ventures. A lot of these commenters have jobs and other such important things in their lives that might keep them from wanting this type of thing to show up under a search of their name. Anyone who is SO dysfunctional that they need to "out" RBNS commenters is truly the same breed as Julia Allison herself. It's sickening.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Crazytrain and others who didn't see what went on here earlier, why don't you e-mail the bloggers? I am sure they would explain it to you. I saw some of the crazy stuff earlier, just repeated bullshit posted over and over and over again like spam, and identifying someone by name, and I don't blame them for taking this step. That is bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well, crazytrain, I think if I (HYPOTHETICALLY) were to say this opinion of yours is stupid as fuck in my opinion, I think that would be seen as rude yet publishable. Of course I would never say that. It's just an example.

    If, on the other hand, I were to accuse you of being mentally unhinged, implying I thought your cat should be poisoned and post pictures of your living room furniture for discussion, that would hopefully go straight to commenter purgatory.

    I think basic human decency is a good rule to go by and no psycho stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Crazytrain,

    I have always respect your contributions. Pleas trust that the stuff that went down here had nothing to do with opposing opinions, or even sassy attacks but were actually of the caliber of insane and threatening to people. You'd be in agreement.

    ReplyDelete
  61. RB.RBNS: How about you identify yourself and explain who you are? Huh? How about it?

    ReplyDelete
  62. anon 2:45

    yes, i do. unlike NS i'm not in the business of saccharine fake dipped in glitter posts to woo you into liking the site. and re: my site? anonymous commenters do not matter to me.

    so if you have a REAL critique: offer it. as yourself. otherwise stfu. or better yet: do better. i had a problem with NS BS so i made something that truly is better. go for it. or go home.

    why is it that people think just because you make a website you are then DUE them some ass kissing? thats not how it works. an anonymous commenter made a baseless statement so i reacted to it as MYSELF. if you don't like it... don't come to my site/cite whatever.

    because if you don't like it: you are obvs NOT my demographic. it's an excellent site, i'm proud of it, and that was childish. fuck off.

    xo

    Oh My God.
    How freakin' hard am I LAUGHING!!!
    I've obviously missed a lot so I have to go back and catch up.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Ironic Slanket - I'm absolutely in agreement that outing people is not okay. My point was that there is no objective line about what constitutes "psycho stuff".

    My worry was that potentially valuable contributions to this discussion might be arbitrarily deleted because they rub the mods the wrong way. If some of the anons that are complaining about particular deletions in previous threads are to be believed, things may have been deleted around here that really should not have. In a forum like this one, deleting comments is a very big deal. It's not the kind of thing that should be taken lightly or done frivolously.

    TJ - Thanks. And okay.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I agree, crazytrain, I just happen to give the mods here the benefit of the doubt with regard to sensitivity when moderating. The allegations of systematic deletion of anything critical of a contributor to this blog seem exaggerated to me, to say the least.
    Anyhow, I sincerley hope these things will cease to be an issue soon, because I definitely don't come here for this.
    Now let's go see if the pink menace has wreaked havoc on SEAWORLD!!!! yet :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have no idea how any commenter "outs" another without the other person making it extremely easy. TJ, I haven't actually seen you post much personal info besides where you live and what field you're in. That narrows it down to a couple million people. If you told me your first name was "Barbara" that would narrow it down to 500,000. For fuck's sake, how do people know who anyone on here is?

    I could tell you that I live in the Hancock Building and am married to a investment banker. Good fucking luck finding out who I am, folks.

    I personally am not thrilled that the comments here will be moderated. Maybe the bad stuff is getting deleted before I encounter it, but considering the nature of this site and its visitors, the trolls are actually few and far between. The many manifestations of trolls are probably just one or two people total.

    While Jacy & Co are incredibly funny, I'm here for the other commenters as much as I am for the blog posts. This is the only place we can bitch about Julia, after all. Even Gawker commenters don't really care to discuss her anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I agree 4:25. And I'd be really sad if we couldn't have commenting here anymore. I love reading y'all.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have posted a few things that seemed pretty harmless, and they never got posted....I don't get it?

  71. attn: crazies- STOP IT. this is a fun site with hilarious comments. stop ruining it for the rest of us. we don't give two shits about the real identity of jacy, total jing or anyone else. we just come here for the laughs. so stop being so crazy.

    it's worrisome! (for reals though)

  72. Morning Jacy = Momsers
