Celtics Life has become extremely popular in just two short years. With that popularity we've seen a large spike in comments on posts. I know the columnists on this blog love to see tons of comments on their posts and are appreciative of your feedback. It's great to see solid conversations in the comments. Unfortunately with a spike in popularity, you see more idiots come out the woodwork.
We don't mind dissenting opinions at all on Celtics Life. In fact often times the writers don't agree. We also aren't here to play big brother and censor people, but we decided we needed to make a change because the trolls were starting to ruin the discussions in the comment section.
After researching different comment systems, we decided to go with Disqus, mainly because we think it will be the easiest transition for our readers. It's extremely easy to sign up for an account and takes like 30 seconds. And obviously it's free. There are a lot of cool features that you'll find once you've signed up. Features we weren't able to offer previously. It's going to make your Celtics Life experience even more awesome (Yes that really is possible).
