The CBC has followed the Toronto Star into the realm of multi-layered commenting; that is to say it now allows readers to react positively or negatively to comments left on news stories.

Which sounds like a good idea until comments extending sympathy to the family of a person who has died start racking up the “disagrees.”

This very issue was the subject of a recent comment on the Star’s website speculating that someone could post a comment about children needing nurturing and encouragement and at least one person would “disagree” with it.
