    Comments reflect public opinion

    While I'm a rare participant of comment sections, it does provide valuable insight into the opinions of people you don't normally associate with. This is necessary in our 'democracy' to see the range of personal opinion.

    I often read comment sections just to get a feel for the range of extremes on an issue, however unpleasant they may be. If debate class taught me anything, its that you can't counter an argument you don't understand. Well, that and debate meets are boring as hell.

    Off topic - dslreports is where I send all my customers for an accurate speed test. Bufferbloat destroys VoIP! And more on topic, the forums of dslreports has informed me on many topics, despite the occasional trolls. :)
