Local self-appointed internet policeman Jeff Stamen said he has taken the day off work to focus fully on his annual ritual of commenting ‘too soon’ on posts he deems insufficiently respectful of the anniversary of 9/11.
“It takes some looking, but they’re out there.”
Jeff says throughout the year he is normally restricted to commenting on school shootings during the short window afterwards when people still remember they happened, but 9/11 is the gift that keeps on giving.
“It still feels just like it did when I was commenting ‘too soon’ way back in 2006.”
He admits he didn’t dare even comment ‘too soon’ on posts related to 9/11 during the first five years after it happened.
“It was… well… you know.”
With a new generation growing up that have little or no memory of the events of the tragic day, he even plans to adopt new strategies to satisfy his need to enforce his moral authority over strangers on the internet.
“I’m think of commenting ‘don’t you know what day it is?’ on any frivolous posts on other matters made by people under 20.”
