What happened to commenting on cnbc website?

Are they scared of comments? Or just don't want people there commenting on stuff that know whats really going?

Has anything good ever come from the comments page on a news website? Very rarely do I see anything resembling rational discourse in those comments.

CNBC comments section was polluted with spammers. You could not get anything meaningful from it having to read a spambot's message ever second post.

Some of them were spot on, of course mainstream media would never out right mention anything truthful.

Often times there was spam, but that's what the report spam button was for. I think they just want the truth hidden, like on certain news sites they will disable comments on certain articles. Can't have the truth leaking out!

There are pros and cons to allowing comments on web sites. The ratios vary by the site.

Overall IMO in the big picture the scales tip to it not being constructive to have comments.

But the site itself has such an influence on which way the "wind"
blows.

Well to be honest there are sites all over the place where people know "the truth" and talk about it. Funny how much the truth varies from one site to another though.

It's difficult to push your anti-second amendment agenda when all of the comments prove your points wrong. The best way to fix this is to not allow comments where people leave rational comments.
