"Anonymous Reader" Demands Changes to BrooWaha Rating System

by yesteryear (writer), Bay Area, December 13, 2007

A BrooWaha reader who goes by the name "Anonymous Reader" is calling for an immediate change to BrooWaha rating system. Editors have yet to comment.

Richard Karn fans around the world were enraged Wednesday to hear that an anonymous reader of the "Citizen Newspaper Network" would like to see a rating of "lower than 1" added to the website's article rating system, in response to an article written about the former Home Improvement star.

The Official Richard Karn Fan Club released the following statement:

"Fans and supporters of Richard Karn were very saddened today hear of this senseless act of cruelty. It is our sincere hope that the parties involved can resolve this issue in a calm and timely manner and that they are careful not to further tarnish the good name of Mr. Karn in the process." - Siggy Mohern, President and Co-Founder, Official Richard Karn Fan Club.

Taggy Brill, General Counsel for the Fan Club, also commented on the tragedy, "We usually don't find news about Richard online, so when we saw that someone had finally taken the time to update all of his fans on what he's been up to, we were really excited. So of course it was really disappointing to see the rude and nasty comment the "anonymous reader" posted. It's been a major blow to all of us."

BrooWaha's already fair and accurate rating system currently allows readers to rate articles on a scale of one to five stars (five being considered "excellent"), and offers separate rating scales based on an article's level of Interest, Writing, Analysis, and Fairness. BrooWaha readers are also given the option of creating their own account, thereby identifying themselves when posting their "... criticism in courteous, temperate, and constructive terms" (from the site's suggested guidelines for commenting).

According to the BrooWaha "About" page, the site "is a network of Citizen Newspapers entirely written by a growing community of users. Each edition focus on one particular topic and has its own submission rules." The website has published articles from writers around the world, and is growing fast.

"Anonymous Reader", as he or she is known throughout the "network", added the comment, "Ariel, could you please create a rating lower than 1." in response to the article, which was written by the site's not-anonymous, fully identified contributor, "Yesteryear".

Yesteryear added the following comment, in response to "Anonymous Reader":"dear "anonymous reader", please keep reading my articles. your comment has given me a great idea for a new one! thanks bro!"

Although the "Anonymous Reader" was not available for comment at press time, he or she did have time to post the following comment in response to "Yesteryear":

"You're welcome, "bro". Hopefully your new idea is better than this one. Can't wait!"

Can we have a negative system for people that do that? But the question is who am I am I the "anonymous reader" or am I just a normal person who wants some tang?? Hmmm? Maybe we can discuss? J & T?

dearest readers, and adders of comments, anonymous or not: this article is meant to make people laugh. so were the other 3 i wrote - yes, including the one about richard karn. oh, and about it taking a whole day to write this - for some reason my articles always seem to take around 24 hours to get published, so i just figured that was the norm. i'll get back to my laughter now. in the words of my fictional vision of richard karn: "HO HO HO"!

Oh, there goes "anonymous reader" again. I love when he gets all mad and then his only defense is to tell people that they're the ones who are angry. I used to do that in sixth grade. Oh, Anonymous Reader, if you really weren't angry, why even reply? So the world can know and finally realize your brilliance. Sorry your real life is so crappy that you have seek some sort of pseudo recognition here. Or maybe you're just a deuche. I'll bet the latter.
