Book Riot Has Avada Kedavra-ed the Comments Section

S. Zainab Williams

Executive Director, Content

S. Zainab would like to think she bleeds ink but the very idea makes her feel faint. She writes fantasy and horror, and is currently clutching a manuscript while groping in the dark. Find her on Twitter: @szainabwilliams.

As of today, Book Riot’s comment section is no more. With Disqus introducing ads above the comments feed (ads we’ll have no control over), a significant uptick in bot comments, heavy moderation of comments in violation of our community guidelines, and the shift from comment sections to social platforms for community building and conversation, retiring comments onsite was a natural and necessary next step for us.

We value dialogue between our readers and contributors, and welcome you to join our active communities over on Twitter or Instagram. Chat with us at @bookriot, find our contributors on social, or email your feedback to hello@bookriot.com.
