Why the Comment Section on Dribbble Sucks

    Why not just ignore comments like those? When a shot introduces a new concept or novel approach to a problem, I've found the comments to be more or less engaging, and many times the conversation is taken elsewhere (here, twitter, etc). For people who just want to share progress, what is the negative effect of these spam comments, other than being annoying? If it's feedback you are looking to receive, maybe set up a public doc or Invision where people can leave more in-depth feedback. And if it's feedback you're wanting to give...well, make sure the poster is looking for it and/or consider a more direct approach (twitter?).

    The one big problem I do see is that spam comments may unfairly affect the algorithm. Perhaps Dribbble might consider (or perhaps they already have) some method where a comment reported more than x times remains in place but does not calculate in the popularity of a post.
