Local Idiot To Post Comment On Internet -
"I will finish posting my comment, then sit there like the worthless human being I am and wait for other commenters to respond," he added. "Because, as I mentioned before, I have nothing better to do with my life."
"We are blessed to be living in an age when we have a global communications network in which idiots, assholes, and total and complete wastes of fucking human life alike can come together to give instant feedback in an unfettered and unmonitored online environment."

How $5 Makes a Difference in Online Comment Quality - A side-by-side comparison of comments on Metafilter (which costs $5 for an account to comment) and YouTube (where any idiot can comment). Craigslist drastically improved the quality of job postings in large cities by charging $25. Amazon.com improved movie and book ratings by showcasing reviews where the reviewer uses their real name, verified by their credit card. The Ithmus has a high quality of comments because they require people to post with their real name as well. Hopefully other websites will use one of these two methods to improve their own content quality. *cough* youtube, digg *cough*

By about 15%.
