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.

I totally agree.
Just because comments work on a site with a fairly "mature", educated and focused audience does not mean it can work for some gadget blog with millions of readers, where posts get thousands of comments and the quality can become really Youtube-esque. A tailor made solution might work there too, but the complexity of the problem is a few orders of magnitude more difficult (maybe even next to impossible, surely the no intervention part is)
