End of the Comment Section

Syria Comment no longer has a comment section. I have decided to eliminate it. A small handful of people have effectively "taken over this platform," as they trumpeted. They bullied and insulted anyone who disagreed with them, chasing off most commentators. It wasn't civil and it didn't promote anything constructive. It became a detriment to my effort to promote different views. A number of my regular contributors said they didn't want to have their articles posted, either because they didn't want to be insulted by the commentators or because they didn't want to be associated with them by sharing the same internet site.

I have tried to warn the commentators to be more civil several times if they wished to have the comment page continued, but to no avail.
