Sure, it may look less “sexy”, but at the end of the day, Intense Debate was chewing up too many of your comments or sporadically sending them to moderation for no apparent reason. In short, Intense Debate was too intense and too little debate. And I haven’t even mentioned the effect it had on post loading times.
But I am curious. Have I made the right decision in your eyes?
I am also interested in getting your feedback in the comments (!) regarding which commenting features you like, and which features you think would improve the commenting experience even more.
