NSCV Commenting Policy

There has recently been a lot of new information and discussion about the use of comment sections on forums and blog sites.  Many sites have been plagued mercilessly by nasty trolls and mean-spirited, poorly informed commentators.

The net effect of these attacks is to drive away those who would like to add to their own store of knowledge and contribute information and well-founded opinions themselves.

Popular Science has found the problem to be so severe that they have closed down all their comment options on their website.  Here is a link to their article:

Popular Science: Why We're Shutting Off Our Comments

The NSCV is taking a cautious approach to accepting comments.  Comments are welcome but only accepted through the feedback form on the homepage.  This policy may be reviewed in the future; thank you for your understanding.
