Matthew Yglesias' Readers Now Spamming Other Sites With the N-Word

Yesterday, after I pointed out Yglesias' no-harm no-foul attitude towards the n-word, a few of his readers, having not commented upon the inappropriateness of the word all day, finally got angry about it... accusing conservatives of planting the slur on the site.

Odd that they didn't seem bothered by the word at all until the finally came up with a conspiracy theory by which to blame it on conservatives.

And they go on to prove their racial tolerance bona fides by reprinting the comment on our site. It's not been Tollbusted to something else, but yeah, originally it was a reprint of the Yglesias bon mot.

And how do I know it was an Yglesias reader? Well, I know it wasn't one of mine: a search for the unique hashmark used to differentiate all commenters' IPs demonstrates that the hash in question has never before appeared on the site. Since I haven't noticed the dispute being picked up by any other big sites, I'm wondering where else this new unwelcome commenter may have come from.

Stay classy, Matthew Yglesias and Matthew Yglesias' racist readers.

BTW: This from a post about Michael Steele, posted late yesterday even as one of his commenters had first-posted the n-word about Steele and it remained up all day long:

I mean, I love accusing conservatives of being motivated by racism...

Emphasis in original.

Oh, My: This Yglesias reader also posted this in the top headlines thread:

162 Michael Steele is a house nig! What's the difference between Sarah Palin's mouth and Sarah Palin's c**t? Retarded shit only came out of her c**t once.

I redacted the c-word. Paulie Carbone didn't.

Since he left his handle on that one, I can now confirm he's a regular Yglesias reader (scan down for "Paulie Carbone").

Remember: Matthew Yglesias loves (his italics) accusing conservatives of being motivated by racism.

Hat tip to Y-Not for putting me some information.
