I can appreciate your reasoning for stopping your Yahoo members from entering comments .. But what I would like to see is a Thumbs up & a Thumbs down. This would serve two purposes: 1. ) It would allow the readers to judge where their perception (opinions) are in regard to other readers; and 2. ) It would allow the author/journalist to judge how her/his efforts are received by the readers. The thumbs up/Thumbs down would take up very little memory and not require an extensive amount of coding.
