Question by Gir-een: What meaningful impact do comments on news articles and blogs have?
I’m sure there are ‘hits’ related to advertising. Anything more?
Answer by EASpouse When the comments are rational and fact-based, they can be the basis for an interesting dialogue. I some places, the author may even return to answer questions, or address issues spawned by the first article. But typically, ultra-libs and uber-conservatives can turn a comment thread into a nasty, vitriolic attack fest — it really depends on whether or not the site requires registration, and whether or not they moderate the forums. Where registration is required and the comments are moderated, you will find more civil discussion and discourse. Where flaming, anonymous posts are the norm, expect more name-calling, closed-minded bigotry, and verbal violence of the first order. You as the reader have to develop enough pragmatism to help evaluate the intent behind, and content included in each post.
For example, the whole “Warren Buffet Rule” issue is a classic case of both sides talking past each other. Buffet and Obama never get into a discussion of what elements of the tax code legally permit Buffet to pay such a low tax rate. Where/when their opponents point out these “errors of omission”, they typically get called names or the subject get changed, no one responds to the tax code issue because it completely destroys the Buffet/Obama argument, if the issue is, how do you modify the tax code to deal with this, without creating some really anti-productive tax policies.

Question by : How do I get rid of that advertising ribbon across the bottom of Yahoo news articles?
My Firefox pop-up blocker is enabled. Is there something called an “ad blocker” that might help? How do I enable that? (I don’t see an “ad blocker” in the tools options.)
OK, I just installed “ad block plus” to Firefox. The annoying advertising ribbon is now GONE! Thanks!!!
Answer by dekakashi Not quite sure what you meant cause i don’t see it.
Probably because my Firefox ad blocker blocked it.
So there you go get an ad blocker or in some cases the ad comes in flash, then you will need a flash blocker
Question by B: Do you ever notice how much advertising is in these internet web pages that show news articles?
To show my point just take any one of those web pages, then copy and paste it into yahoo mail before you decide to send it to someone but before you hit “send” manually delete all the unneccecary bannars, photos, links, ect. You will then be able to instanty see what it is about all that over marketing hype I am talking about and maybe get why too many ads can annoy me at times.
Answer by HelenES Try bbc.co.uk – relatively unbiased and no advertising.
