The online comment section with Deseret Morning News stories — particularly in the sports section — have become a source of contention and a spouting point for hatred and irrational thought. I'm disappointed that the newspaper has become a blog for people who are only interested in name-calling and attaching obnoxious footnotes to every article.

CNN doesn't feel the need to allow for a comment section.

Why not allow a few separate Readers' Forums where they can play and keep articles free of the inane babble? I'm trying to keep good memories of Utah now I'm living away, but I usually end each article feeling glad that I don't live there anymore. Sadly, only the angry minority seem to be posting.
