I don't think that disabling comments would work -- it would just result
in more junk news posts.
But we can go back to the default we had before -- comment titles are
listed in a little box that you can click on to read. San Francisco takes
this approach: http://sf.indymedia.org/news/2003/03/1590086.php
This makes it much more clear that the posts and comments are separate.
And you don't need to click on the comments unless you want to. It might
help with the time it takes to load a page as well now that we have so
many comments on our stories.
Become the media.
