“All of us who work here agree that the choice was binary: shut down the comments or shut down the site.”

Publishers mostly were disgusted with the vulgar tone of comments, which they didn’t have the time to moderate, so it was easier just to shut it down.

Those concerns were before the cancel culture digital purge that started in the past few years, and now has accelerated with the blocking of Trump, his supporters, and even mainstream conservatives from social media.
