New Comment System Up and Running

| Mon Aug. 16, 2010 11:47 AM EDT

I was gone while all the new comment system plumbing was installed, so I almost forgot to ask: how do you like it? Anything not working for you? Any random gripes or complaints? The main reason for installing it was to cut down on spam, but just so you know, it sports a few other new features too:

  • You don't have to create a new Mother Jones login. But now you can also sign in with your Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, or OpenID login.
  • Flag inappropriate comments: See spam? Trolls? Hate speech? Flag it for our moderators.
  • Sort comment view: You can now change the way you view comment threads for a given article if you like. Want to see only the comments other readers liked? Or only the most recent ones? No problem.

Leave your comments in comments.
