Commenting on Gizmodo isn't hard, essentially it should be fun and enlightening. Some of our commenters have trouble understanding that and instead they choose to be dumb.
For the most part our commenters and their contributions to Giz are irreplaceable and add that extra level of insight. If you're posting good comments this message isn't directed at you, it's for that other guy.
We're talking about anyone who posts such overplayed dumb comments like "First", "Will It Blend", "Fanboys" and so on. Having good commenting etiquette isn't hard and to help you out here's a few simple tips:
Before you make a comment ask yourself:
- Has my comment been made before ?
- Is my comment dumb ?
- Does my comment add anything positive to the discussion ?
