New and Improved Way to Comment

Tablet Magazine is changing its commenter policy

Print Email

Readers of the blog as well as the rest of Tablet Magazine may notice something different: from today going forward, all commenters on articles and blog posts will need to log in via Facebook, Google, Twitter or Yahoo before discussing them below, through the popular Disqus platform.

In requiring commenters to sign their names to some extent, Tablet is becoming more, not less, typical of online news outlets that publish articles that frequently prompt robust engagement. The change is designed purely to improve the comments themselves. We hope that this change will lead to sharper, more penetrating exchanges among commenters, and among commenters and authors and editors; slightly more civility (but not too much!); and above all a greater feeling of community among Tablet and Scroll readers.

Thank you.

I sincerely believe that the use of both pseudonymity and anonymity often contributes to the incivility one often finds on internet fora. I expect that this new policy will improve the quality of discussion on Tablet.


Your comment may be no longer than 2,000 characters, approximately 400 words. HTML tags are not permitted, nor are more than two URLs per comment. We reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments.

Thank You!
