Crying to Pete McCommons

by captain

So, one mystery has been solved. I heard about this a while back, but it was from one source. I’ve added a second independent source, so I’m comfortable reprinting it. The reason the posts were taken down, apparently, is that Juliana Schumacher went to Pete McCommons’s (the editor of the Flagpole) house and cried to (source one) or yelled at (source two) Pete about the thread. After this confrontation, the post was taken down (passive voice because I don’t know who did it). And more importantly, it led to the closing of comments on all articles indefinitely. Chalk one up for cronyism? Or for not having the legal budget to fight a frivolous lawsuit? Note: for the purposes of the impending lawsuits, those last two comments are pure conjecture on my part.
