You have to become a member to use it. Is this a little ploy to get members.
The Local was better in the old days before the comments section was removed.

It was returned several months ago, as a sign-up bonus...

I must be more alert in future, do you know if it is worth it.

I enjoyed the comment section because it was "policed" and regulated at the time and the "loonies" we have today would not last...

I stopped reading TheLocal because it was taken away and am now used to not reading at all...

I'm in a similar situation.

I used to only read the headlines, then skip straight to the comments. I do that with most news sites actually. News articles these days rarely contain any more useful information than what is in the headline already.

Now I don't bother at all. The comments are boring. I prefer unfiltered comments, where anyone can contribute, loonies included (one man's loony is another man's leader).

"(one man's loony is another man's leader). "
