Hey, You Can Just Hit 'Report Abuse'

Interesting little fracas over comments happened here a few days ago.

We posted some stories about franchising, Web material that went hand in hand with a one of our TV documentaries. Per usual, our community of commenters weighed in. One post was none too complimentary about one of the companies named.

So a flack called asking for the comment to be removed. But they used all the sound and fury usually reserved for complaints about a story, video or blogpost. This is the first time the thunder was about a comment.

The Web savvy know that when enough people hit the "report abuse" button, the comment disappears. Oh well, now they'll know.
