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.

If I notice someone is being down-voted for making a valid comment I mod them up, I'm sure others do as well

I certainly do this. If it's particularly egregious I will also post a chastising comment, which may serve to shame down-moderators and usually Streisand-effect's the post they were trying to suppress as my reply encourages others to take a look and up-mod it.

As long as a few are vigilant the problem is a minor one.
