Dartlog and The Inner Office: comments enabled (for the time being)
You never thought it would happen. I certainly didn't. But if you ever thought our comment threads have been bad... Even the Reviewers were wary to take this step, as shown by past comments here and by their new comment policy, written by Andrew Grossman:
Comments and Policies
We are trying out Blogger's new commenting system. If things turn out poorly, the feature will be removed.

Comment policies:
1. Any comments containing personal attacks will be removed.
2. Any comments with inappropriate language will be removed.
3. Radically off-topic comments will be removed.
4. In sum, we will not edit any comments, ever, but may remove comments at our discretion.
5. If you're really concerned that we will delete your comment, save a copy so that you can post it elsewhere. After all, if it's on your site, then we can't do anything about it other than link to and argue with you.
One dartlogger named Dan Linsalata had a post headlined "The Floodgates have Officially Opened", and linked to a story about gay marriage in Mass. with "There will be much rejoicing in Sodom and Gomorrah tonight."

Go see the lovely comments and how the original post prompted such thoughtful discourse, including Dan Linsalata's own comment: "I made the reference to Sodom and Gomorrah precisely to elicit these types of responses. Whether or not I think it's a valid comparison should be irrelevant."

Update: Heh.
