MinnPost.com Replies

Per my post of a couple of days ago, I did hear from MinnPost.com regarding use of the phrase "teabagger" on their site.  Don Effenberger, News Editor, replied:

You’re right. Comments referring to Tea Party advocates/activity as tea baggers and tea bagging are not acceptable and should be rejected.

In response to your email, I have removed several recent comments with those references that slipped through.

I will remind all of our comment moderators about this.

Thanks for your note.

While some comments have indeed been removed, a simple search of the offending term on the site still yields 26 references, some from as recently as last month. 

At least it is a start.

Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
