Why isn’t there a comments section available

In the news stories?

I think it’d be great if there were a comments section available directly after the news stories and then possibly have a list in the forum section of recently active news stories.

I know people will cut and paste links but honestly that’s much more work creating a new thread than just having a comments section. I think more, and better discussions could occur

There used to be just such a thing, it was removed years ago...

As Gamla said, there used to be a comment section, and the comments got quite interesting from time to time. Many comments did not align with TL's editorial stance so TL removed that feature. I believe you might call that censorship.

True. TL didn´t like any opinion unless it was their own view. Same with TL on FB

When they removed the "comments" I stopped reading the news...

Would anyone pay a subscription fee, if the "comments" were returned???

I would not exactly call it "news" although they have made an attempt at it...
