commented on We Still Get Great Comments (From Great Commenters) Here On Slog
I, too, still yearn for comment threads to be a place for intelligent and nuanced discussion and conversation, and have hope that they will someday become exactly that more than they are today. We have this super-powerful technology that could really allow us to understand each other more, to get past the right/left bullshit and really get to the core of who we are as people, to truly learn from each other. Trolls ruin it for everyone. I'm not going to quit intelligently commenting. I am, however, going to try harder to not get sucked into the crap side as much.
