Yeah, yeah -- the internet is a wild-west world where there are no rules, where anonymity lets pseudo-tough guys act like macho jocks.

Still, sometimes you want to make it clear that some commenters are idiots.

Yesterday we wrote about Jamie Leigh Jones, a former KBR employee who claims she was raped by employees of KBR in Iraq.

Jones sued KBR and testified before Congress; now she's sued the United States government.

Some of the comments in reaction to the story:

"Fuck that. She didn't get raped, she was a Haliburton whore. She gangbanged a few guys, blacked out from too much alcohol, and woke up the next morning sore as fuck. Stupid lying bitch."

"Yawn, another bottom feeder looking for a quick and easy buck!"

"she knows she liked it"

"Tellin ya...she liked it. Breast implants tell all. What good natured, innocent woman gets breast implants. She wanted it..bad"


The only good thing is that the item got picked up by Digg, so this crap is coming from anonymous idiots nationwide, and not necessarily Houston.

We haven't checked the 160 or so comments on Digg; we can't imagine they're somehow asshole-free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
