I moderate comments at Antiwar.com. This is something I've done for years, first as a volunteer and now (mostly because they insist) for a little money.
There are several hundred comments a week. Some of them are quite good, some of them are awful, a lot are in between.
A couple of readers here comment over there occasionally. One -- comrade hermit -- does so on a regular basis, contributing a great deal to elevating the conversation.
If you're a non-troll KN@PPSTER reader, I'd love to see you commenting over there; at all if you don't now, and more if do occasionally now. Plz.
