Over and out.
Q: I enjoy reading your articles, but it’s difficult to read your boards. I tune in for your humor and perspective but I’m also getting the vile racial comments from some of your contributors. My mother was Mexican, and reading your blog is like walking into a minefield where the contributors comments are extremely irritating and souring. Do you care that by allowing these socially handicap contributors to publish their perspective insult half of the city and about one third of recent USC alumni?
A: As a general rule, I do not read comments. I have enough things going on writing for the paper and blog, not to mention answering all these questions. So I’m not going to devote my life to monitoring reader comments. That said, racial comments or profanity should not be tolerated. So if you have a specific example of racial abuse, let me know and I will inform the site monitor.
