Sun newspaper chain to close comments on most online articles

James Wallace, the vice-president, editorial for Sun newspapers, announced that the Sun chain of papers is removing reader comments from most of its online articles. According to a note to readers last week, the move is in response to, “the increasing use of Sun comment boards for anonymous, negative (and) even malicious personal attacks.”

The paper is encouraging readers to continue to comment and discuss stories, columns and editorials via social media channels and to submit comments to the Letters to the Editor section.
