Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

It has been a pretty quiet week around here! Perhaps all of the monsters have gone back to school and their parents have restricted their Internet privileges until they finish their homework. EAT YOUR HYPOTHETICAL VEGETABLES! I do not know where everyone went. But, well, with so many people out of the picture, it cleared the way for a first in Monsters’ Ball history. I’m not sure how I feel about it. Probably bad. I feel bad about most things.

After the jump, your five highest rated comments, your lowest rated comment, and my Editor’s Choice.

[Ed. note: uhhhhhhhh, congratulations, werttrew? You came out of nowhere and managed to score 4 out of the top 5 spots this week? Either your comments represent the zeitgeist of the Videogum Commenter Community, efficiently expressing what everyone was feeling, or you stuffed the ballots somehow. I don’t really think you cheated. But it’s weird! You have to admit that it’s weird!]

Score = -23

[Ed. note: I was honestly half-expecting the lowest rated comment this week to be from werttrew. It would just make sense. I probably should have picked one of his comments for the Editor’s Choice. You know, for thematic cohesion. Anyway, this comment winning the bottom slot seems, much like werttrew’s victory sweep, to indicate just how inactive the comments were this week. It’s a clumsy, gross, unfunny, trollish comment. But it’s also, you know, shrug.]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Really? Another “this shoulda been Lindsay” post? Can’t we just take it on faith that everyone has their reasons?

[Ed. note: No one is trying to replace Lindsay Robertson, because there is no replacing Lindsay Robertson. Yes, agreed, the timing of the introduction of freelance contributors was awkward. So. “It’s complicated” — Facebook. Can we all move forward now?]
