I'm sure their message sent fear into the hearts of all trollers. I think we all learned a valuable lesson here.
I'm just curious to see where everyone is on the subject of engadget turning off comments, then making the viewing of comments an opt-in choice.
Personally, I really like it. Comments are like M&Ms. I'll eat M&Ms if they're in a bowl on someone's desk at work, but I don't go to the store and buy them. I'll read comments because they're there, not because I really care that much what people (often including trolls) think.
