Currently, we're cleaning up the comments on the Bill O'Reilly feature.

If you take a second and look back at the old comments (from back when eBaum "didn't censor") they're all comments about the feature. The comments were used for commenting.

There are a ton of complaints that it's a first amendment issue, but I don't really think you know how that works. It is 100% within our rights to remove any and all comments on the site.

Those are two good examples of the very small amount of comments that slipped through.

This was originally featured on 05/12/2008. Both of those comments came after the mods were paying attention to the feature and slipped through. The point still stands, that off-topic comments weren't tolerated in the "glory days" "before censorship."

PepperPeanut, no one gives a shit about the fucking comments. People look at ebaums features through Facebook mostly, no one goes to the actual website to log in just to comment. Untwist your panties already.
See that's where you're wrong. The majority of the traffic to the site itself, and the comments are consistently one of the most hated parts of the site.

People do care about the comments. We constantly get complaints about them.

In that case Pepper, you have two options: delete the comment section or tell all these people you continuously claim to be "complaining about the comment section" to shut the fuck up. There will never be a time when you can control what people can say and not say unless you remove the platform completely. Hell, people on FB troll comments under TheChive features, it's hilarious and people still comment about the feature also.
