Article commenting has become one of the most popular features on and In order to provide you with a better experience, we have revamped the design and streamlined the commenting process.

As of tomorrow you will notice that we've added a link near the top of the story that displays the number of comments readers have made about that article. That link will take you to a separate page, which displays all the comments posted about that article.

On the article itself, only the five most recent comments will appear so you can easily keep up with the latest discussions. Comments on articles will no longer appear in the forums section of the site, which will also undergo some changes in the coming weeks.

This has been a major technical undertaking, and we were unable to archive discussions on articles that occurred prior to the change. We apologize for the inconvenience.
