Gary Illyes from Google posted on Twitter one of his did you know pieces saying did you know that "quality comments can be a signal of a healthy website?" Here is the tweet:
DYK quality comments can be a signal of a healthy website? pic.twitter.com/Yugh9AhBWz— Gary Illyes ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ (@methode) March 10, 2017
I am not sure if this is a direct dig at the comments on this web site? I mean, we do get a lot of interesting comments. I do remove pure spam comments and have spam filters. But the comments here are incredibly troll-like - but still somewhat relevant to the discussion above.
So "quality" is a very general term and I am not sure if what Matt said in 2014 still applies or if things have changed.
Thoughts? When commenting, make it quality. ;-P
