Collegian Opens Floodgates, Allows Comments
Sunday was an auspicious day for the Daily Collegian. It marked the first time that readers were able to comment on articles (as distinct from blog posts). The system works by utilizing a comment system called Disqus and requires users to authenticate with either a Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo!, OpenID, or Disqus account.
Editor-in-Chief Rossilynne Skena stated on her official blog that the authentication system is in place “to avoid the spam and hostility so often associated with anonymous comments.”
We want to congratulate the Daily Collegian on taking its next big step in the scary world of online media. I am surprised that it took them this long, though I suspect it had something to do with credibility worries. Good luck with keeping the commenters civil!
