Pardon Our Dust: Fixing the Comments System

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


You said you’ve had it with spam and trolls; believe us, so have we. To (we hope) cut down on both, we’re switching to a new commenting system on Motherjones.com, powered by Disqus. [Read more about Disqus here, or check it out on The Atlantic and Alternet.] Don’t worry, you won’t have to create a new Mother Jones login. You’ll even be able to use your Twitter, Facebook, or OpenID login instead if you prefer.

Please note that we’ll be turning off article and blog comments for the weekend starting at 4pm Pacific on Friday while we get the new system up and running. If all goes well, commenting should work again by Monday morning. Thanks for your patience and please don’t be shy to give us feedback once the new system goes up; we’ll be posting a few times asking for comments and you can also email web-feedback at motherjones.com

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
