The New York Post is like a

wingnut blog -- it doesn't allow comments unless you're willing to post the following information:

First name
Last name
Email address
Household Income
Readership of the New York Post
Home address
Phone number

The better to harrass you with, I guess.

Using their online form, I tried to write a letter to them regarding their flippant coverage of the death threat in the form of a white powder-filled envelope that Keith Olbermann allegedly received in the mail yesterday. The story was relegated to a snarky column in Page Six. I was denied, unless I provided the information above.

BTW, if that had been O'Reilly or Hannity or Coulter on the receiving end of a death threat, do you think they'd be so "hah hah!" about the coverage?
