One of my favorite things to do after reading an article on any website is to read the comments. It feels good in most instances to know I’m not the only critical thinker.
But lately I have noticed more main stream media sites and even not so main stream sites have been either getting rid of comments all together or on certain articles.
I understand why they do it. They take all this time coming up with some pure BS and they cant allow some critical thinker to pick apart the holes or flaws in certain stories. Like with this suspected cop killer in PA. Or the beheadings of people over seas. Most companies will hide behind the ruse of not offending others with there comments. But we all know the truth. The average shmuck who doesn’t know better and thinks main stream media is the truth and nothing but cant have their opinion swayed by some guys critical thinking. That’s my rant. Thanks for reading.
Side note thats how I woke up.

It could just as likely be the fact that almost any comment section you go to now is populated by trolls, spammers (because you know it's awesome when you are trying to talk about SIP trunks and all you get are "by nikes for $20"
Sure..it could be some nefarious plot to control free thought (quick everyone get their tin-foil hats on) ..it could just as likely be something less bad than that.

Noticed it too. They don't want anyone discussing the information they feed us.
That or they'll delete the comments and write "Sorry we are no longer accepting comments for this article."
But if that's because they have a cut off time for comments I understand. If not it's to stifle criticism.
