Comment section below cyclingnews articles

When this featured first appeared, I really enjoyed it. You got instant comments and perspective from fans. Informative. Insightful. Sometimes funny.

But I have stopped reading them. It appears to me (I may be wrong I am no Sherlock Holmes) that a person has created multiple accounts and is having a conversation with themselves with the multiple accounts. They create these long chains and up vote them. It just kills the thread. There might be 70 comments in a comment section but 50 are from this person and his alt accounts.

Normally, I'd be like whatever but really kills the user experience.

Hi,

I can pass this on to the relevant people. As forum mods/admin we don't moderate the comments on the main webpage or check for multiple accounts etc. One of us did, I'll see if they still do it.

Cheers,

I am so glad the comments have been removed and disabled under the Peter Kennaugh report about his health. I tend to look at the comments under news items - this one was already going from bad to worse after a few kind posts gave way to other undesirable comments. It has been a kindness to remove them. Good work CN.
