BLABBERMOUTH Bans Whiny Teenager Demographic

Source: Blabbermouth


As you may have noticed, there has been a lower-than-usual number of comments below each story on BLABBERMOUTH.NET for the last couple of weeks. The reason for this is simple: We are in the process of cleaning up the countless abusive, obscene, defamatory, racist, homophobic and threatening comments that have been posted on this site since the "comments" feature was implemented back in early 2002. That also means that anyone posting such comments going forward will be immediately and permanently banned.

You can still voice your opinion and you are welcome to be as honest as you wish to be. However, calling musicians whose music you don't like "faggots," making racist remarks and threatening other people on this site who happen to disagree with your views is not something that will be tolerated.

For the time being, the sign-up feature on BLABBERMOUTH.NET is disabled and will remain so until we have cleaned up the comments database and are satisfied that most of the troublemakers are dealt with appropriately.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. You can also help us by reporting any instance of these rules being violated going forward.


Blabbermouth is the best thing going for metal news but the only board worse than their comment board is Ozzfest's. Outstanding news!

Good job. Metal is about being a man, not a little bitch. Those kids were giving metal a bad image.

Wow, I thought the people there would never do that because they were having fun reading their comments. They brought it on themselves though. I mean do you really think polite comments are gonna be made under the article "Lars Ulrich spotted in restaraunt?"

I'm rather glad to see that Blabbermouth is doing that though. Blabbermouth posters are asschunder.
