I'm going to have to disable commenting on all posts shared via this page going forward.

You may have noticed that our shared posts seem to attract an awful lot of pr0n spam comments (as well as other less offensive types of spam comments). These comments appear (seemingly) on each and every article we share. As fast as we block the accounts responsible, new ones appear.

It's not cool at all. But there are no controls available to be me as a page owner to deal with this sort of spam preemptively. I can't auto-mod, or restrict comments to people who follow the page, etc.

So, alas, comments = off.

If you have something you want to say about an article you can, as always, use the comments section on the site, reach us on Twitter, comment on Facebook, or share the article from this page and add your comment(s) that way.

PS — Big thanks to those of you who've told me about the comments in question as and when they appeared, and big apologies to anyone who caught sight of them.
