- Libelous. Don't accuse your publisher of, say, embezzlement -- unless you send me a photo showing her stuffing cash marked "property of Gracia Martore'' into her pantyhose.
- Threatening. It's not nice to fool Mother Nature -- and it's even less nice to suggest you and another reader duke it out in a New Jersey bar. (Yes: that means you!)
- Irrelevant I'm so, so sorry you don't like working for Journal Register Co. But if you take a peek at the name of this blog, you'll notice that it's about a company called Gannett.
- Spammy. Gannett's efforts to take over college newspapers and grind them into dust, too, are pretty gross. But copying and pasting diatribes about that and other stuff is even grosser. (Is that a word? For that matter, is spammy a word?)
