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.

ie we've already posted comments of our own


This is really my only beef with the current system. We're all grown ups here and we should be trusted to actually moderate even after commenting.
It's just lame.

I can see the reason for it (essentially to stop people down-voting replies to their own posts). How about a compromise where you can't moderate posts that you've replied to directly or are direct replies to your posts?
