To Comment or Not To Comment

That is the question.

Popular Science has decided to shut off comments on their new articles (with occasional but rare exceptions). Their online content director eloquently explains why.

If anybody has any thoughts on this, I would be very interested to hear them (well, to read them). On the balance, I think it's the right call on their part, but I make this statement with sadness.
