Commenting on Buffalo News stories removed?!?!

(UPDATE: READ BELOW THEN COME BACK HERE…I JUST WENT TO THE BUFFALO NEWS’ SITE AND THE COMMENT SECTIONS WERE BACK…I AM EITHER LOSING MY MIND (NOT HARD TO BELIEVE) OR THE NEWS WAS HAVING TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES THIS MORN – SO DISREGARD THE BELOW…BUT I THINK IT ISN’T THAT BAD OF AN IDEA)

Did I miss something?

When did the Buffalo News pull the plug on commenting on their news stories?

It looks like you can still comment on their assortment of blogs.

A hearty AMEN from me…the comments on their site were worse than what you see on most blogs around town…racist, awful, hateful, ignorant babble on virtually every story…ok, maybe that is a stretch, but it was bad and something I have written about before.

I wonder if they will devise a new system which will police the comments better…the Buffalo News is probably the most visited site in the B-lo and their traffic makes it hard to keep an eye on the crap that was posted on a lot of their stories, but I’d like to see the comments section come back if they can find a way to filter out the bad and the ugly.

The Buffalo News should be applauded for taking the comment section down either to fix or just eliminate.  It is a shame they had to do it, but there are just some things that shouldn’t unfold daily.

  1. I agree with you 100%, however I think that someone at the News believes that certain topics mean more hits for the advertisers, so all is well. As long as they don’t start believing that the lunatics and losers are representative of the majority, rather than only themselves.
