    that post story on Fairfax Underground should warn parents not to let mentally disabled kids post on forums without supervision. A depressed autistic kid annoying a troll with anger management issues is not going to end well.

      The “kid” is 32. Unclear if he is employed but he is at least capable of attending VCU, so it is not immediately obvious he should be denied internet privileges.

    Problem: “conversation is often raw and laced with racism, sexism, personal attacks and bogus claims” …Solution: “Some sites, like Popular Science, have done away with comments altogether.”



      Since there is virtually no original content on this site (except for advertisements from Realtors and weekly boring columns from Ken Plum), the comments are the only thing that offer some humor and some insight into what is really going on in Reston.
