An update on keeping the conversation going in "The Situation Room"

We’ve made some changes to how the comments work here on the blog.

The big thing you’ll notice is that from now on, your comments will appear on the story immediately after you hit post. We used to have someone read every comment to make sure they didn’t violate our Community Guidelines, but that caused long delays and made it almost impossible to have real conversations.

If you see a comment that you think is inappropriate, please hit the report abuse link and we’ll take care of it.

To cut down on spam and other abuse, we are also requiring people to create a WordPress account and log in before they comment.

It’s a bit of a pain, but we think the benefits of being able to talk to each other about the stories we cover will outweigh the one-time inconvenience.

If you have any questions or concerns, let us know in the comments below.

Thanks.
