Site News: Comment Policy Update

December 22, 2013 by / Logo

Just a quick note about something you may or may not have realized already -- we've recently changed our Comment Policy (which is also available through the "About" menu at the top of the site).  In addition to comments which are posted directly on individual stories, our software now automatically pulls responses in from Facebook and Twitter, and republishes them as comments.

How it works: Anytime we publish a new story on, the headline and link are automatically shared to our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ feeds.  If anyone posts a comment (on Facebook or Google+) or a direct @ reply (on Twitter), it will be automatically pulled in as a comment.  These auto-imported comments appear below the story, just the same as any comment posted by any reader with a free / login.

Although our Comment Policy page was updated with this news some time ago, we also wanted to draw attention to the new feature here.

What do you think?  We're always interested in your feedback at
