OSNews, Generic OSes The last few weeks there's been a considerable amount of chatter on the web about whether or not a news website, blog, or some hybrid thereof, needs comments. Since we are working on the next version of OSNews, which means I've been thinking about things like this a lot, I figured I'd pen down my thoughts on comments.

Or, perhaps, it could be done stackoverflow-style where you need e.g. 3 votes of "Troll" before the post is slapped with any negative score, at which point it drops 3 points immediately. That way one guy saying "Troll" and one saying "Inaccurate" and one saying "Off topic" don't have any effect; a consensus must be reached, first.


I really like this idea. Though of course, then somebody has to decide how many votes is "enough."
