Why we’re disabling comments on aljazeera.com

It’s a shame, but I don’t blame you. I enjoy the comments on the few sites not overrun with trolls, but otherwise, it’s just annoying. They hijack the conversations, and then it devolves into name calling, which is not productive for anything (other than blocking reasonable conversation).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
