Is there a liability issue for a site when someone posts something dumb or mean? I don’t understand the business reason that IMDB needed to close its comments, which may have been filled with cruelty and stupidity, but was otherwise self-regulated by other people just flagging the worst of the worst.

I recommend people use their own old-fashioned filter to just ignore the vast sea of moron trolls that swim in any site’s comments. Don’t let the bastards get you down.

Like what you read? Give Kurt Russell a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
