Feb. 19, 2017 Staff Report
The comment section of the Astoria Post is likely to change following an increase in the number of mean-spirited responses in recent times.
The Astoria Post’s comment section has rarely been moderated and that was largely because of the belief of “free speech,” as well as the sheer volume of them on a day-to-day basis. Between the Astoria Post and the other sites that are part of the Queens Post, more than 100 comments come in per day.
A new comment system is likely to be put in place by March 1. Before that is done we would like your feedback.
