Recode cans comments

Recode turns off comments, their biggest change to the site yet.

The biggest change for some of you, however, will be that we have decided to remove the commenting function from the site. We thought about this decision long and hard, since we do value reader opinion. But we concluded that, as social media has continued its robust growth, the bulk of discussion of our stories is increasingly taking place there, making onsite comments less and less used and less and less useful.

Here’s why there are no comments on TDH.me.

Thoughts? Let @tdh know on Twitter, or find me elsewhere. There is also a newsletter.
