While this site has never purported to be a serious hard-hitting news outlet, a certain tradition was established by the previous writers. James F. and Rusty both spent years building a considerable audience for this site. Their posts were biting, timely and often hilarious. They took on some serious (and not so serious) issues, and made their marks on the D.C. blogosphere.
I fell into the role of administrator of this site when other people lost interest. I've never been one for censorship, and I generally agree it's a good thing to rile people up. Usually that gets people thinking. However, there's no place for a lot of the things that have been posted here. It's regrettable that they appeared on this site at all.
For those readers who are interested in reading M@'s thoughts, please visit his personal site. This site is about illustrating the problems (big and small) and annoyances of D.C. It's not an extension of a personal blog. No one is perfect, and it's undeniable that our personal lives will bleed into our posts here. However, the moment that this site becomes associated with rape fantasy and all of the other bizarre circumstances surrounding some posts, is the moment something has to be done.
The Internet is, after all, serious business. But really, no sarcasm tag here, that's not cool. While this site hasn't always been the epitome of perfection, there are just some things that are not acceptable.
