    even after it went all-digital, but stopped when they switched to a FB login. I think they do this to cut down on the nasty trollish stuff without much active moderation, which costs money. But it also takes away a lot of substance.

      anymore, although I haven't noticed that any "substance" has returned to the comments as a result... although I have found a few substances there.

      •  When did they stop requiring FB logins? (0+ / 0-)

        Although, it's kind of moot now as the P-I is a shell of a shell of its former self and barely worth reading anymore. Plus, I moved out of Seattle a year and a half ago, although, strangely, I find myself still interested in local stories like progress on the tunnel or light rail extension and the mayor's race (I used to live a couple of blocks from McGinn), even though I'm not from there originally.

        Seattle kind of sticks to you if you lived there long enough. In a good way.
