When we decided to give live commenting a go, back in February, we were really clear that this should only apply to the blog, not to the features and reviews that we run on a monthly basis.
Well, it seems like by default this has not happened – because people just started to post comments on the blog post announcing a new feature or review. Therefore, I’m going to be turning off comments on these posts from now on.
One of the reasons that we don’t have live commenting throughout The F-Word is to provide a bit of a protective barrier for our contributors – although us bloggers have all thrown ourselves into the commenting ring, as it were, that’s not what our contributors really sign up for. It also splits the comments I think a bit confusingly between the blog and the monthly comment round-up.
However, you can still comment on these articles as usual – it’s just a case of sending in your thoughts through the comment form, as always (you can find the link at the bottom of each page).
Please do let us know what you think about this in the comments here.
