Online comments are another story

Hiding at the end of an article about Matt Groening and David X Cohen in the June 25 print edition of USA Today (and available online here) is this quote from Mr Groening:

The quality of comments in general on websites is pretty low. When you read an article you really like, and you…look at the comments, about five comments in, somebody hijacks it, and you want to kill yourself, so yeah, I try to avoid that.

So do I.
