So now that the site has been live for nearly a month and I’ve had a chance to get used to everything one issue still bugs me on a daily basis.
Separating comments for premium and non-premium users really stifles interaction of the user community to discuss the articles. Those non-premium users are nearly second class citizens and cannot even reply to comments Premium users make.
Consistently having the check both sides of the comment system is time consuming and often means I simply miss out on valid points made by non-premium members.
I truly hope you will merge these back into a single view, perhaps offer filtering if folks desire that but I cannot help but feel like the comment system today needs to be changed.
If anyone agrees, disagrees or has any suggestions please chime in.
