LGC News ...

Postby cantsay » Thu Sep 14, 2017 6:51 pm

Looking in on LGC News site, there doesn't seem to be any comments now to read? .... I always liked to read them, but it looks like this part has been scrapped .. :cry:

I thought it was my Laptop and then realised like you. that comments seem to have been stopped. Maybe someone didn't like the replies. I used to like reading them also.

Maybe someone has got at them. There was one article a few days or week ago that attracted many comments(can't remember which)some from the South, also you have trials coming up over the Turkish Coup, maybe all a bit tetchy. Shame.

The contact us page says:

Unfortunately, reading and moderating comments has become very time consuming. The time saved will be used to add extra articles and content to the site. Thank you for your understanding.

tbh it usually just turned into a flame war between a couple of usual suspects writing ultra right wing rubbish...so im not sure if it was such a bad thing?

Thats a shame really then if thats the case... That means the ones from the GC side who were always stiring have done what they wanted! ,.... Caused the comment page to close so that the TC and the ones that support them are basically punished! Sad really .... :(

LGC News has lost a lot of its appeal to read with out the comments, what does every one else think? ..

I dont miss the comments personally. As mentioned above, they usually just descended into a war of words and always on the same topic with the same people spitting the same facts about the cyprus problem. The bbc news website also used to let you comment at the bottom, they took that away probably because they got bored of hearing the same complaints?
