Complain about these things and they'll either ignore you or ban you

Serious question but why would you complain about comments left on a terribly outdated local newspaper site? Most of the people who post there are clearly absolute dicks. Why would a comment you don’t agree with make you complain to the newspaper?

This site is not entirely free of them.

But the same applies why would anyone complain about a comment they read online posted by anonymous idiots? If anything is slanderous or libelous a moderator usually up has to take things down anyway here and on IOM newspapers.

Does IOM Newspapers have a moderator?

There’s a “report” button besides every post made so my assumption is that they do. You also seemed to say that you have reported things before above. Which prompted me to ask why.

I have expressed an opinion, that's all

To be fair I don't think they have any junior secretaries or indeed any secretaries at all.  Local newspapers have had budgets and staffing slashed over the last few decades and IOM Newspapers have the problem that they are staffed like a local newspaper, but have a nation to cover with all its complexities.  So they aren't going to waste time on stuff they are providing for free.

(There may also legal implications - monitor your comments too closely and you become more responsible for them).

You're being very generous to them. They are shit.

IOM Newspapers could easily get a v junior secretary to go through the comments once a day and delete all the spammers.

Are you posting from a parallel timeline where offices still have secretaries? Where local newspapers even still have offices?
