Pardon Our Dust: Fixing the Comments System

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


You said you’ve had it with spam and trolls; believe us, so have we. To (we hope) cut down on both, we’re switching to a new commenting system on Motherjones.com, powered by Disqus. [Read more about Disqus here, or check it out on The Atlantic and Alternet.] Don’t worry, you won’t have to create a new Mother Jones login. You’ll even be able to use your Twitter, Facebook, or OpenID login instead if you prefer.

Please note that we’ll be turning off article and blog comments for the weekend starting at 4pm Pacific on Friday while we get the new system up and running. If all goes well, commenting should work again by Monday morning. Thanks for your patience and please don’t be shy to give us feedback once the new system goes up; we’ll be posting a few times asking for comments and you can also email web-feedback at motherjones.com

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.

$400,000 to go: Please help us pick up the pace!
