Put a comments button at the bottom of the article, so the whole article can be read before, you know, reading the comments.
Don't make the comment button disappear after clicking on "read more".
Why you remove the comment section? If there is no comment section I think many people will stop visiting.
Allow comments after your articles. Lots of readers have good and interesting ideas they share that can help others that read that article.
Yes, I want to comment also. Red lipstick rules!! And she worked in Paris?
