I Hate Canton is not surprised that the Rep pulled all comments on the Rite Aid article. After all, the destruction of comment threads is the sole purpose of Octopuppet. That is its raison de entre, poor sad creature. We guess that it took so long for the Rep to take action because yesterday was Memorial Day and the paper was low-staffed.
WARNING TO REP: Octopuppet strikes when your defenses are weak. Man the ship on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Labor Day. and the Fourth of July. No day is too sacred for it to strike!
I Hate Canton has archived most of the offensive, demeaning, insulting, and hateful comments in the blog below this, and we have saved but the latest version of the article/comments itself, although not for publication here.
By the time I Hate Canton dragged itself out of bed this morning, we didn't find any new attacks. The Rep, in fact, had already run its sweep through the thread and removed nearly anything that either offended or mentioned IHC. Later in the day, all comments were nuked.
Apparently working under the belief that there is no such thing as bad publicity, Octopuppet, itself, posted IHC's link all over the Rep yesterday in an attempt to make IHC look like a blog whore. Let us assure you, dear readers, IHC has never and will never whore itself on the pages of the Rep. We leave that dubious distinction to the attention-craving Octo and its hydra pups. We're thrilled to get new readers, but don't want attention via Octopuppet.
We must admit amusement, though that Octo complained on the Rep that it is not allowed to post here. Imagine this, OC: I Hate Canton is a safe place. A place where those whom you have cyber bullied and abused and run off for years can post and share community. You can't reach your tentacles in here and destroy reputations and stir your pot of hate. Your attack yesterday on the deceased profoundly retarded son of regular poster Mary Parker should convinced anyone outside of the entities in your head, that you are toxic and destructive.
Killing all comments is the easy, but not right way to go. Killing access to the Rep by Octopuppet, as much as possible, is.
Octo, you were banned for life under the old regime at the Repository. You are banned for life from here, too.
