Comment sections on websites are supposed to be places were readers are able to communicate with other readers and people on the website. In an idyllic world, they would be troves of intellectual banter. Instead, most are just the opposite. Most are nothing more than cesspools of hate (real hate, not Internet hate) and close-mindedness. It doesn't matter the publication, either. Sure, World Star's comments are wild ignorant (and hilarious), even the NYT has a comments on stories that will make you double check what website you were reading.
