As and from this morning, there’s a new system in place across irishtimes.com regarding commenting on articles and blog posts and how these comments are moderated. All the changes are oulined here by online editor Hugh Linehan. The two big changes are (a) users will now need to log in using their social media account – Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn – in order to comment and (b) all comments will appear immediately, with registered users able to use the system to flag comments they feel breach the new Community Standards.

UPDATES: (1) yes, we’re aware that all previous comments on posts are no longer there, but I’m told that we can expect them back presently. (2) The new system is a bit of a prude so if your comment will not appear if it contains certain “obscene” words. Please feel free to list any other SNAFUs you find below and I’ll pass them on to the hard-working tech team.
