Change to the commenting protocols…

Until now we have largely operated a low threshold for participation in the debates on Slugger. But after a fairly focused and unprovoked attack by one commenter this afternoon on a single public figure we have decided to reserve the capacity to comment to those who register with Slugger. We’ll keep this policy under constant review; but for now the only way to comment is to ‘join’ Slugger.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
