Rejoice, Jerk-offs! Passive-Aggressive Downvoting Has Returned

So, I’ve been back here for almost three months (time flies when you’re flinging salt, I know) and the one complaint I keep hearing is about the comment section. More specifically, the inability to upvote the good and downvote the bad. I get it. Trust me, many a day was spent back in this website’s […]

You Bitched, We Listened: Comments Are Back Open

No, this isn’t a prank. It’s true. The comment section on all Going Concern articles is once again open for business.

I'm sure you share our disappointment, because one of the strengths of GC has always been our completely anonymous comment section. […]

Perhaps some of you have noticed that Mommy has had to put a couple of you in time out recently due to off topic, completely out of line and/or totally useless comments. I see how some of you could be upset by this considering we've been pretty lenient up until now but it's gotten completely […]

A Word About Comments

Since the year is still fairly new and we know some of you are still holding on to completely unrealistic resolutions, we thought it would be best to encourage to reflect on yourselves in a different manner: how you comment on Going Concern. For starters, let us just say that we love (most) of your […]
