PLEASE go back to your old commenting format. It is impossible to find old comments made and engage in a discussion with other users now.
The only reason I use your site is for the comment sections and discussions with other users. I can find news anywhere. If you don't go back to the old format you will be losing users. This is fact. Just go look in the current comment sections. They are full of comments from people complaining about the new format, Users are hardly even discussing the topics in the articles anymore.
