A Norwegian blog has developed an interesting feature that forces its readers to read the posts before leaving a single comment.
NRKbeta.com implemented the "anti-troll" feature in mid-February. The site says it's getting the same amount of comments as before it added the feature.
The anti-troll feature requires all readers to correctly answer three questions about the post before leaving a comment.
"Generally, we see that many read only the headline and a few lines before rushing into the comments section to participate in the debate," NRKbeta editor Marius Arnesen told AFP on Thursday.
Coincidentally, blogs in America are dealing with the same problem. One blogger's readers often ignore her posts and use the comments section as a meeting spot for their online friends.
Some readers leave rude comments such as, "I didn't read the post. Can someone provide a recap?"
The problem is so widespread in America that major blog sites have taken the unusual step of disabling their comments section altogether.
