From the Executive Editor: Bee to change online reader commenting system

On Oct. 14 The Bee will temporarily drop commenting from, encouraging readers to give us feedback about commenting while we finish the work to change our commenting system. Our new approach will use sign-in through a variety of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others. This approach will use the real names and personal descriptions of social media accounts to identify those commenting at sacbee instead of the current approach allowing widespread anonymity. The goal? More civil and constructive comments and less disruptive behavior.
