WBTV.com makes changes to commenting system

Our old commenting system has gone away.

We at WBTV have decided, in an effort to keep our comment threads more professional and on point, to move to a system that only allows for those who have a Facebook account to comment on wbtv.com.

During the past couple of years, we have seen an increase in racist remarks, personal attacks, and comments that otherwise violate our terms of use.

We hope that our new commenting method will allow those who have legitimate thoughts to engage in healthy dialogue about the content of the stories we share with you.

If you wish to create a Facebook account to be able to comment on wbtv.com, it's easy and you can get started here: http://www.facebook.com.

While you're at it, be sure to "like" WBTV on Facebook. You can do so by clicking here: http://www.facebook.com/WBTVNews3. We offer several items daily that you cannot get anywhere else!
