Online comments at sltrib.com topic of Monday Trib Talk chat

Last week, The Salt Lake Tribune invited readers to participate in a poll gauging attitudes toward our commenting policy on stories at sltrib.com.

You’re an opinionated bunch about the topic, to say the least. The blog post about the poll alone generated more than 800 comments. I also received dozens of emails from readers expressing opinions and suggesting improvements.

In all, more than 1,000 readers completed the poll, according to Deputy Editor Tim Fitzpatrick, who is analyzing the results intends to make recommendations based on all the input.

Clearly, this is a topic readers want to talk about, so we’re providing one more avenue for that conversation.

You can join Jennifer Napier-Pearce Monday at 12:15 p.m. for a Trib Talk live video chat about online comments. Fitzpatrick will participate in the discussion, along with sltrib.com moderator Amy Lewis and Marie Shanahan, a University of Connecticut journalism professor who has researched the topic.

Send questions or comments using the #TribTalk hashtag on Twitter or Google+. You also may text them to 801-609-8059.

We’re expecting a lively discussion.
