COMMENT of the WEEK

What's most interesting to me at this point about Surfline's "new and improved Power Rankings" (as described objectively by Surfline's editor) is that they feature yet another attempt by Surfline to stifle dissent from their audience.
Like all Surfline features, the comments section for the new rankings is moderated.
Unsurprisingly, I received a large number of emails [...]

Comment of the Week

On Sundays I take a break from regular posting, nurse my hangover, and highlight reader comments. But I'm not sure if there's any need to fan the flames of the multiple controversies that are still burning in the comments sections this week.
So I'll shed light on a totally unrelated shit storm that got started when [...]

Comment of the Week

Another productive week here at PostSurf headquarters.
7 posts generated 154 comments, which ran the usual gamut: threats, conservative rants, liberal rants, angry anti-establishment rants, theological rants, deranged ramblings, and plenty of accusations of sexual misconduct.
Last week, I pleaded with readers to engage in "thoughtful debate with other members of this community."

Naively, I'm going [...]

Why are yall so ANGRY?  Are yall using dial up or something?
Monday mornings are depressing enough without reading through a week of deranged PostSurf comments, so I chose [...]

Comment of the Week

Tip of the day: don't read PostSurf's comments if you have a really bad hangover.  There's some depressing  "welcome to the monkey house" type shit mixed in.  I used to think that I might be the most hated man in surfing, but now I realize that people hate Scott Bass and Alex Knost as much [...]

COMMENTS of the WEEK

As I've mentioned, PostSurf is based on a blind faith that there are many other surfers out there who are dissatisfied with the current state of the surf media.  Some of these surfers have started leaving comments on the site.
On Sundays I'm often too hung over for original thought, so instead of a new post [...]
