Don't Post Comments On StlToday.com Or They Might Tell Your Boss
from the how-nice-of-them dept
Via Romenesko comes this little gem of how the online editor of StlToday.com got upset about a "vulgar" comment that was left on a story. The editor, Kurt Greenbaum, noticed that the commenter in question's IP address was a local school, and contacted the school to alert them that someone from there had left a comment. And then:
"About six hours later, I heard from the school's headmaster...The headmaster confronted the employee, who resigned on the spot."Lesson of the day? Don't post comments on StlToday.com or its editors may call your boss.
