That's right, comments are back everybody! And we didn't leave you hanging for no good reason. We hope that week off of the comments will prevent those silly trolls and spammers from comin' round anymore. But since we know it won't, we have some new anti-spam systems on the backend, and a new feature for you guys to use: comment reporting
Next to everybody's comment, you'll see a little exclamation point. Click that, and the comment will be immediately reported to our staff. Please, only report offensive posts, or spam!
We don't like spending our days at work looking at a bunch of falsely reported comments.
We've also made a couple of changes: no more numbering comments (they just got way too confusing), and no more stars (we never turned 'em on anyway). However, the big news here is that Engadget is getting an entirely new comment system in a few weeks, so be on the lookout. We're expecting to finally provide persistent user profiles, advanced moderation, and other neat stuff we should have had, like, forever years ago. Thanks for your patience everybody, and happy commenting!
[Big ups to Gavin in our tech team!]
