Time for Some Troll Whacking
We hope that this will discourage drive-by spammers and trolls, while still providing privacy for all our users.
Our moderators will continue to keep an eye out for abusive comments, but given the volume of discussion here, we'd love your help. Flag abusive comments (see our community rules here), which helps us identify and ban trolls.
We'd love to hear your feedback on this change, or anything else about our commenting system; email us at support at motherjones dot com.
