Practical opinions on comment sharing

Originally I had made a post defending comment sharing because sometimes people actually have important things to say in the comments, and it’s best to view them in the original context. But apparently since there’s too much disagreement regarding how and when comment sharing is appropriate, from now on I’ll just go through the bother of copy-pasting the content into its own post and then linking back to the article. I suppose that’s going to have to be the practical policy for everyone now.

At this point, I think it also might be worth considering disabling the comment sharing feature on Kinja entirely to prevent confusion and abuse.
