Discussion on: Should DEV allow you to disable comments on your posts?

I think you would encourage a much worse type of post. On a platform where comments are enabled, we all know that anything we write is open to scrutiny from a wide range of viewpoints. It forces people to write in ways that are a little more empathic and open to a broader range of opinions.

Without comments we might see more posts that are filled with a little more opinion, bias and vitriol, as there are no repercussions at all.
