Live5News.com makes changes to commenting system

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Our old commenting system has been replaced. We at Live 5 News have decided, in an effort to keep our comment threads more professional and on point, to move to a system that only allows for those who have a Facebook account to comment on live5news.com. The switchover did not allow us to transfer or input comments from our old system.

During the past couple of years, we have seen an increase in racist remarks, personal attacks, and comments that otherwise violate our terms of use.

We hope that our new commenting method will allow everyone to engage in healthy dialogue about the content of the stories we share with you.

If you wish to create a Facebook account to be able to comment on live5news.com, it's easy and you can get started here: http://www.facebook.com. While you're at it, be sure to "like" Live 5 News on Facebook. You can do so by clicking the "Like" button at the top of this page: http://www.facebook.com/live5news. We offer several items daily that you cannot get anywhere else! 

For those who have not seen our Terms of Use, they read as follows:

We welcome your participation in our community. Please keep your comments civil and on point. Notify us of any inappropriate comments by clicking the "X" in the top right side of the comment in question. You must be at least 13 years of age to post comments. We may review your submissions and remove any content without notice, without explanation, and for any reason in our sole discretion, including if it violates these rules, other parts of the Terms of Use, or is otherwise objectionable. You may also be banned from commenting on this site without notice and without explanation, and for any reason in our sole discretion, including if it violates these rules, other parts of the Terms of Use, or is otherwise objectionable.
