"The addition of comments was something we thought about carefully for a long time; we were
quite concerned that they could ruin the feel of the site. In the end, it seems, trusting our
readers has paid off; the quality of the conversation here is often quite good."
I think the quality of the comments is largely because of the quality of the content. The
content on LWN is well researched and rarely good candidates for flamefests. It's a testament
to how good LWN really is.
Here's to another 10 years of LWN!
