A commenting conundrum
from Editor & Publisher
From the outside looking in, it may appear to non-newspaper folks that the industry is abandoning some of its principles — free speech, open conversation, introspection, cynicism — by shuttering a feature of online publishing that's been ubiquitous for as long as there have been websites: reader comments. Publishers of all types of content — not just news — are struggling with how to encourage dialogue with the communities they serve, without merely offering a platform for rampant vitriol.
