Okay, so here’s the deal with the comments.  I welcome them.  I do.  It makes me feel loved.  But I do have a few teensy-tiny rules.  Well…maybe not so tiny, but relatively simple.

  • Try to keep the SQUEE! appropriately contained.  If I try to write a halfway-intelligent post about music, try to keep your comments about…well, music.  If I post hot new pictures of your favorite contestant, however, feel free to fangirl/fanboy ’til the sun comes up. 
  • Feel free to disagree with me.  Feel free to disagree with other posters (if there are other posters).  Just don’t make it personal, and don’t Take! It! Personal! when you really shouldn’t.
  • Posts of the “Contestant X is a (insert derogatory word of choice here)” won’t last long.
  • I’m a stickler for the spelling and grammar thing, so…try to stick with it.  Obviously, my eye (and my spellcheck) aren’t going to catch everything, and neither are you, so you’re not going to get a public rap on the wrist for misspelling a single word or forgetting to capitalize your “I.”  But try to keep the internet parlance down to a minimum, please.  A stray “LOL” is fine; a string of “omg katharines new song RULEZ she is teh best idol ever and wuz totally rObBeD! LOLZ!!!111one!” is going to be deleted.  And seriously, do you really want the entire Internet left under the impression that you never got past fourth-grade grammar?
  • I don’t mind cursing, although keep in mind that bad words have more impact when used sporadically.  Epithets concerning a contestants’ (or a fellow posters’) race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexuality. etc. aren’t going to fly.  Similarly, epithets alluding to a contestant’s sexual behavior will not be tolerated.
  • And finally, do try to keep any comments semi-intelligent.  It’s fine to quote other posts and add your “I totally agrees,” but please do try to contribute something unique to the discussion.  Thanks.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
