Live Chat: Comments on sltrib.com with new media editor Scott Sherman
First Published Apr 03 2012 08:23 am • Last Updated Apr 03 2012 01:30 pm

In Sunday's editor column, Tim Fitzpatrick pointed out that since our implementation of new, more aggressive efforts to chase away the "problem children" in our comments areas online, we've seen a dramatic improvement.

We have more people commenting and more people reading comments than ever, yet we are removing fewer comments and banning fewer commenters, in part thanks to these efforts, and in part thanks to our commenting community as a whole.
