This is good news. I've seen many shitty websites go out of business after they deleted their comment sections. No comments = fake news.

Comments turn readers into a community (even if it is a shitty one), engaging them and keeping them on the website more.

Even on websites with well researched and good articles, often the comments will add extra value and insights that draws more readers in. Some of the more technical websites I use fall into this category.

Turn off comments, and expect to see traffic and unique visitors decline.

The comments and activity move off site to places like here.

Reddit used to have this angle sewn up, but now they're trying to figure out how to eliminate comments on a comments-only website.

That was what Reddit was for a while, someone would submit and article and the comments for the submission would have a nice mix between entertainment and autism powered extra information. Voats got a bit of that going on too.

Exactly. This is how the good sites flourish. Because all the shitty ones don't accommodate a social community. By doing this vice is pushing people away. ALL people

No comments really just means no comments. Anything else is just your guys bullshit. There is no blanket label for all things faggots.

It's funny that they acknowledge people say Vice was great before they were taken over by cucked liberals.

I mean, remember all their documentaries like the Cannabal Warlords of Liberia or the Suicide Forest in Japan and all their pro-gun stuff? They don't do anything compelling anymore.

Or their documentary on the War in Afghanistan, "This Is What Winning Looks Like." Some great documentaries back in the day (4-5 years ago).

Sad what a piece of shit Vice has become.

Websites without message boards, that grandly and loudly boast of a community, are essentially saying. "WE WANT TO SHOUT THINGS AT A PARTICULAR GROUP OF PEOPLE AND HAVE YOU APPLAUD". They just want you to clap and do/say/think what they want.

If you have to hide from comments to support your narrative.....sound of flushing toilet

The sheer lengths people are going to to demand democracy be destroyed in the name of democracy is somewhere between appalling and exhausting. Come January 20th, they're probably going to start demanding his impeachment to continue the theme.
