Reporting mistakes and errors in posts?
I think part of the problem with the bulk of emotional responses in the comments section has to do with things like errors, mistakes and inaccuracies in posts/articles. The writers on the Verge are obviously knowledgeable and very hardworking, albeit human, therefore mistakes are to be expected.
I think there should be a way to report inaccuracies and errors in articles. It would help keep the comments/discussions clean and focused. This might not be the end-all solution to the problem, but it sure is one way the readership can help improve the quality of posts/articles on The Verge.
