Comments of the Day: "Beasts"

The Huffington Post published the news of Israel building houses in east Jerusalem, which as usual spawned 700 comments, most of which were filled with hate. I didn't grab the top comments because while they were anti-Israel they weren't that remarkable, but after paging through the first couple pages of comments, I saw one I had to share:

Refer to Jews as "beasts" and "criminals"? Earn 6 favorites, your comment stays up for hours, and your fellow travelers won't speak out against you. Welcome to the Huffington Post.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
