Babylon & Beyond today is switching to a new commenting system.
The system requires commenters to sign in through their Facebook accounts. People without Facebook accounts will not be able to leave comments.
Readers will have the option of posting their Babylon & Beyond comments on their Facebook walls, but that's not required. Readers are welcome to express their opinions about the news -- and about how the new Facebook comments system is working.
Jimmy Orr, the Los Angeles Times managing editor in charge of latimes.com, discussed our online comments and the Facebook system in a March entry to the Readers' Representative Journal.
We hope to see your comments on Facebook.
