Even after numerous warnings there’s a small number of people who insist on abusing the comment section to fight their own private wars against each other which, frankly, makes moderating comments a pain in the ass. And not the good kind. On top of that we have to deal with people leaving inappropriate & lewd comments, not to mention the ones who think it’s a great idea to publish someone’s personal information.
Trying to keep the comments clean eats up time and energy we’d rather spend working on the re-launch of the site. That’s why I’d like to get your opinion about whether you’d actually miss the comments if we’d disable them altogether.
A new project created in support of queer youth is making the city of Bangkok a much more colourful place. Launched in commemoration of the 2014 International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 17, the School Rainbow project "promotes the drawing of rainbows, symbolizing diversity, around school gates and other settings where youth meet," according to organizers. As part of the project, Thai students chalked enormous rainbows in schoolyards around Bangkok "with the aim of bringing awareness to the problem of bullying," before the organizers talked about queer kids’ right to a safe education with the students.
