I'm thinking most future news posts are going to have screened comments, as soon as I or somebody else makes that option per-post. The off-topic troll fights and general {{hugz}}/we-love-brad noise makes it hard for people to ask good questions and see the good answers.

And this should be cool for lj_dev/lj_biz:

But yeah... growing communities well is a hard problem.

This would be super cool. I sometimes want to comment but don't want to read through all the 200 existing comments to make sure it hasn't already been said... So I stay quiet.
