DFM chat on online comments and annotations

Journalists, Digital First Media peeps, anyone who wants to are going to be taking part on our Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we are revisiting an evolving and lively issue: Online comments! *ducks under table*

What is the most constructive way to promote good online comments and/or annotations? Starting with the assumption that you do want to have a conversation around your site's stories and other content, what is the best way to present them?
Or are they doomed from the start?

never tweet

There are at least four ways to ~comment~ on this topic today! You can use Disqus at the bottom of the post (they're  not moderated, so be nice. I do get an email for each one); you can use #dfmchat on Twitter or use the ScribbleLive container below; or you can annotate any part of this post using Genius. Just select any part of the text here and go wild. There are other creative ways to comment, of course. Why don't you share those ideas with us?

If you want to be in the post chat archive, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
