Assuming most, let's say 70%, of those continually returning to an article are participating in the comments and returning to read the responses (there isn't much data on this), that's around 12,785 comments per day.    However, in the past few months we've seen several news sites closing their comment sections citing poor quality of discussion and rise in popularity of Facebook/Twitter. That's a total of $100k per year.

    This guest post is by David Hartstein of JG Visual. I’m sure you’ve heard well-reasoned, logical arguments for why you should be commenting on blogs: “You can be a part of the conversation happening out there.”. But, while there may be a burned, unpopped kernel of truth in these statements, none of them take into account the many reasons you should never comment on a blog. There is no room for mere opinions in the comment section of a blog.  It is a blog after all.  No feelings, just facts. Those other commenters probably know more than you anyway. Re-check.
