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.

Sorry for not being able to up-vote you, because I already posted.

That's the one annoying thing about OS News commenting system. I guess it is alright for this limit to exist within the thread I posted in, but not in all the others.


Yes, this is quite frustrating. I was the second or third comment and now there are 90+ and I can't up/down vote even though there are new directions the discussion is taking. Am I supposed to avoid making any comments early so that I can retain the ability to vote later? If no one wants to be first to comment so they retain their ability to moderate, then there will no comments to moderate.
