I feel like the comments on the Front Page have been less constructive and much more hateful in the last weeks since the sale. The misogyny, racism, and other bullshit that was filtered more effectively before seems to be afforded a lot more leeway now.

I would really hate it if it ended up like NPR, which shut down their comment section entirely because the trolls had won. I’d equally hate if if Jalopnik became Reddit because you can say whatever the f**k you want because of “freedom”, or whatever.

There has been zero transparency about how discussion on former GM sites will be managed (as opposed to the prior system).
