I appreciate the need to shut down the abuse of general comments. The switch to the Forum discussion bothers me a bit, though, as it isolates the comments from the actual review or article to which they refer. rldunn's idea of creating a new thread that's specifically for each review/article might be a good approach, but it misses the mark unless the full article is also available in the Forum to provide appropriate context.

Would it be possible to apply a vetting system? For example, allowing comments to be posted by Senior Loungers and above? By 100 posts, the mods have plenty of opportunity to see if the poster is legit.
