Hey, you know what's really disgusting? When someone leaves a white pride community screed/advertisement on the entry about my dog dying.

The comment field is white because it's kind of apropos I've already screened it. It doesn't deserve any kind of logical reply, or even a "How dare you," etc. What it deserves is for the commenter to be banned to Kingdom Come and back--not for the hateful "white pride" bullshit, because Livejournal probably can't do anything about that due to the First Amendment, but for 1) spamming a community advertisement, period, 2) on pretty much the least appropriate entry possible. I mean, yes, the fact that I would get to see this cretin banned is a bonus. It's funny, you know, because I am proud of my Anglo-European mutt heritage, but all this "White Pride" shit does is make me feel ashamed. So I'm going to be contacting Livejournal and see what I can do. I'm trying to figure out a way to do it without unscreening the comment, though, and I'm not sure that's possible.

ETA: Aaaaand the user has been suspended. According to vees, the community targeted in the comment is also in Russian--but seems to be innocent and misrepresented. I'm hearing that other people got hit by the spammer as well, and it's starting to sound like some kind of weird grudge. I'm not sure which is worse--that some spammer might have been advertising a white pride community on the entry about my dog's death, or that a spammer might have been waging a grudge war against an innocent community... ON THE ENTRY ABOUT MY DOG'S DEATH. What the fuck, people, seriously.
