Never read comments.
I already know that when it comes to YouTube or Yahoo or even CNN. But freaking Guardian? As much as their commenters claim to be more liberal and tolerant than other Brit news sites’ readers and “the Americans”, the bulk of their comments and upvotes show so much racism.
I was reading http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/apr/17/boston-marathon-explosions-muslim-reaction and it’s astounding how many of the comments come from people who completely miss the point.
