Our New Commenting System: More Fun, Less Ugg Spam

Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.


You said you’ve had it with spam and trolls; believe us, so have we. To (we hope) cut down on both, we’ve switched to a new commenting system on Motherjones.com, powered by Disqus. [Read more about Disqus here, or check it out on The Atlantic and Alternet.] Don’t worry, you don’t have to create a new Mother Jones login. But now you can also sign in with your Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, or OpenID login. (And if you haven’t started following us on Twitter or joined our awesome Facebook community, come by!) 

A few new features we think you’ll like:

Flag inappropriate comments: See spam? Trolls? Hate speech? Flag it for our moderators.

Sort comment view: You can now change the way you view comment threads for a given article if you like. Want to see only the comments other readers liked? Or only the most recent ones? No problem.

Improved spam filter: Uggs ads, begone (again, we hope).

Please let us know what you think in the, well, comments; you can also email web-feedback at motherjones.com.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
