Comment of the Day: Jews "Were No Angels"

The Huffington Post's daily Holocaust-related article for the weekend was about a bell dedicated to Hitler in Austria. The article generated over 500 comments, the majority of the top comments being creative uses for the bell instead of a Hitler memorial (toilets, dreidels, etc.).

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.
