    The maddening thing is that report abuse does occasionally work. If it never worked, I would never bother. I don't know what their process is. Maybe they just spot check the complaints instead of going through each one, or if they simply think it's OK to use words like "retard" and make extremely childish insults.

    Hello everyone.
    Still unsure with the Republican Candidates and not impressed with the debates. As for the MJ trial don't follow it much.
    I feel the attack of the trolls on people is cyber bullying. Teenagers can get in trouble for doing
    it. Some suicides have occurred from it. CNN should be more proactive to stopping this. If someone dies and a lawyer gets involved they could be in a liability suit along with the perpetrators. The report abuse button is for that but their being inactive to do anything about the abuse leaves that door wide open.

    Saywhat, I have to agree with you; the state of out nation is precarious, indeed.
    Caution: rocky road ahead.

    I sing all the time, too, and my gd is a happy little one, too!
    (When not teething, which she madly is right now...)
    I hum a lot, also; she loves to lay on my chest when I do. Gb's are awesome!
    My humming in not so much fun for the people at the library; it drives them nuts.
    I don't even know I'm doing it at times.

    Hi, dragonex.
    I agree completely with all of your assessments.
    Teenagers are not the only ones who get into trouble; adults are equally as responsible for harassment.
    CNN *should* do more, but this particular blog doesn't have a mod, and it doesn't have any option like other blogs to indicate what kind of abuse it is, I don't think.
    The few times I've seen CNN on an actual computer screen was a long time ago; has that changed?

    @Saywhat-I was actually the person that put the Coffee Party in motion on the blogs, when I saw what was happening to the Tea Party Hijaced, I decided to make a mockery of it and said, (in January, I want the American people to wake up and smell the coffee party,
    2 weeks later this Parker woman was putting together an internet site and on CNN.

    Oh. T I T A N. Right. It was about the STOP button that didn't actually do anything on Unk and Boaz's ship (in the Vonnegut novel that apparently contains a bad word). It was just there on the control panel to make them feel better.

    so. You have the right to worship awynay you wish. And I have to right to ask you to realize that the religion you worship may not be the right one. If you dont wish to change, tell me and I wont bring it up again unless you are dear to me and I really would like to see you in heaven after we die. The problem is that too many religions promise that you will get to heaven if you do things their way but have nothing to back that up. Mine at least lays down ways to do it. Ignoring the sins of others if they will ignore your sins isnt a way that ANY religion promises, to my knowledge.
