Here's your question and answer of the week from the Punknews Formspring:
Q: Why do people get mad at you for things commenters say? A: Punknews' image seems to be crafted by what people read on the site. For a while the stories had some editorial comments and jokes but as the site grew the stories became more factual, less commentary. As a result, it seems a large portion of people's perceptions of the site are crafted by the comments as they are the most frequently updated and largest part of the site. It seems a fair amount of people lose perspective between the people who comment and the people who actually run the site and the dredges of the comments (the sexist, racist, or otherwise ignorant remarks) are the ones that become branded to the site.
We work hard to demonstrate that those fringe opinions are not the ones held by the people who run the site, or even a majority of the readers, but it's not always easy. That said, I think the podcast has helped people hate us for things we've actually said and not things other people have said. -Rich
