What is most enjoyable and useful about LWN is the quality of the editorial work. If by reading the weekly news I could get what Jonathan thinks are the most relevant five or six comments on a particular subject (in addition to the story itself), then that would be far more valuable to me than what the original poster thought would be witty, insightful, or informative, and quite a bit more valuable even than what other readers thought.
Just as you summarize the Kernel mailing list each week for those of us who don't have time to read it (and even do the research needed to help us understand some of the topics you summarize), in the comment system more isn't better. Better is better. Of itself, more is worse.
