There seem to be some conflicting ideas of what the comments on PT posts are there for. Most contributors think that the comments are for others to reflect upon the post and put in some substantive commentary, adding to what is there or bringing up serious considerations and critique of the content of the post.
On the other hand, we have a lot of non-contributors who seem to think of the PT comment capability just as a rather slow IRC chat room. This is certainly the case for the trolls. It would be unfortunate if many others are lured into troll-like behavior.
