I can't argue about the need for the signal to noise ratio on comtenms to be improved in high volume sites, and I hope that communities can do this.BUTI fear that in some cases the system for promoting comtenms will be gamed, or that communities simply won't bother because the S/N ratio is already so poor. How many large blogs eg FAIL have the first ten comtenms saying F!RST!! ? When did you last read the comtenms on Guido or CiF or YouTube? If site owners want to have interesting comment sections they'll have to invest in some editorialising themselves.Can they do that and still be trusted?
