No Comments for Reddit’s News Site

Reddit is looking to get back into the public’s good graces with its first stand-along property, a news-focused site called Upvoted, which will cull news stories from Reddit threads, attempting to recapture some of the traffic other news sites get by taking stories from its popular forums. Though Upvoted will work in tandem with Reddit to get many of its stories – the site will also have podcasts and videos – it will have one decidedly un-Reddit-like feature: no comments. – Tim Baaysinger (Adweek?)
