Comments Section

Have you noticed how many websites have dropped comment sections completely in the past couple of years? Toxic comments, flame wars, and spam are to blame. Meanwhile, this comic is a true story. Jeff Lovfers at Don't Hit Save is going the other direction, and has just now added a comment section to his comic website. So far, it's going well for him.

We all like a little feedback and community engagement. Neatorama doesn't have as many comments as it once did, because now you must register as a Neatorama member to post comments. But fewer comments aren't all bad. Not all posts have conversations, but the conversations we have are better, and I've gotten to know some Neatoramanauts pretty well.

The one I miss is the Internet Movie DataBase forum (IMDb). It was a goldmine of information, insight, humor, analysis, support and intelligent criticism, with just a bit of crazy. Then, one day, the Powers-That-Be decided to chop it, and life became less fun. I blame the advent of Mr Trump, whose supporters spam-warred with the bashers.

Eliminating comment sections at pretty much all news sites would be an excellent step in fixing society as we know it. Nearly all comments on Fox, CNN, The Washington Post, et. al, are worthless. I don't believe for a minute that those sites use comments to encourage open and constructive dialogue. If it was my site, I'd be embarrassed by what was being posted and would have shut it down.
