moderation on articles posts?

are there any moderators here that can moderate posts on articles??

i'm being bashed and called names just because i stood up to gamevil's Air Penguin game while they were bashing it... suddenly i became their target.... and i don't even work for them...

I was also going to post this... for some reason that game seems under attack more than usual.

I dont moderate the front page comments so cant help you there. But I think its kind of ridiculous to think Konami will bother with such comments. They're either fanboys or just plain old trolls. No reason to doubt anyone from konami will post like this even if they WERE about to release antarctic adventures for iOS.

anyways, they [comments] have been removed..

thanks for your time though supah!!! (well i still think he is somewhat related to konami, maybe a 10yo kid whose cousin's uncle made some pixel art to arctic adventures back in the days and now just wanted to troll around)

The only reason they stayed up for so long is because everything got posted at like 4:00 AM US time. That being said, things wouldn't have gone anywhere near as far as they would have if you hadn't insisted on continually getting baited into arguing with a troll.

i'm sorry hodapp, you were saying that i "got what i deserved" by arguing with a troll? or that you guys were sleeping so that's why things got out of control a lil bit?

besides, i wasn't the only one in the 'discussion', and honestly i only kept going trying to both defend the writers article (which was also bashed and by that making bad publicity of TA) and gamevil's game... then again, i know i wouldn't make a difference in the world, just couldn't help to see those harshful comments being posted over and over. i tried, i failed, i'm sorry.

I'm saying it happened super early in the morning when no one was around to moderate comments. Additionally, it takes multiple parties to take an argument that far. The guy was obviously a troll, there wasn't much reason to continually engage him.

I'm always awake when you guys are asleep.
