A thread where we reminisce about when article comments were actually good and insightful

But yeah, the comments have really gone downhill recently - and articles such as this one really seeming to bring out the worst in people.

Some of the comments inside are just absolutely head banging - literally celebrating what is described in the article as a 'lose-lose for the consumer'. I'm not saying comments should be moderated more heavily, I just want to sigh and think back to a time where comments were constructive, and people saying crap would be pointed out - instead of the rationals shouted down.

So yep. Sigh.
