Sound Off: Comment numbers

Why are there discrepancies in the listings of the number of comments on stories on Some stories show many fewer comments than the number listed.

This is because of an inconsistency in our online publishing system. Stories that appear on more than one site — for example on LJWorld and — show the total number of comments on the story across all sites, but only the comments entered on that particular site are actually visible. In addition, the number may not match because some comments are occasionally removed by site moderators, but the overall number of comments made is still listed.
