|The forums are going to be axed, and replaced with commenting sections where only those with Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, or Facebook accounts can reply.|
Those kinds of comment sections are becoming very popular because companies can track trends on social networking sites better.
Even ESPN uses that. I think there's is Facebook based. Comment sections, are the worst places on the internet. Worse than reddit and rivaling that of 4chan. Not that I'm on CBR ever now, but I sure won't be bothered to "comment" in a field of nonsense that's unsortable. Nope.
I agree, completely. However, the comment section format is catching on with websites, as actual forums are losing favor with websites. It is cheaper to have comment sections because it doesn't require dedicated servers to host large numbers of posters, a database of poster information, or an archive of threads.
