A Welcome “Sign of the Times”… | Voices from Russia

Well, well, well. The Moscow Times shuts down it's commenting function. Seems too many people did not like their reporting and their sucking up to all things western.

I saw this on the pro-Western pro-neoliberal Moscow Times:

Dear reader,

Due to the increasing number of users engaging in personal attacks, spam, trolling, and abusive comments, we are no longer able to host our forum as a site for constructive and intelligent debate. It is with regret, therefore, that we have found ourselves forced to suspend the commenting function on our articles. The Moscow Times remains committed to the principle of public debate and hopes to welcome you to a new, constructive forum in the future.


The Moscow Times

A friend of mine at the Centre informs me that nobody likes this rag except for expats, those who suck up to them, and extremist zapadniki. That is, most of the comment was negative, so, these American-conservative-style babies pulled the comments. They favoured the neoliberal pig Prokhorov in the election… someone who wanted to sell the country to Soros for his own benefit. Pass the jug and cheer… it means that the plug-uglies got it in the neck. Of course, they ain’t gonna shut up, but Vova isn’t going to shut them down. He knows that next-to-nobody reads them. This means that Potapov’s effort to export Americanism has failed… he’s grown grey in treachery, but all of his exertions for Langley have come to nought. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy…
