Comments have no place in science

Popular, the internet extension of one of the older scientific magazines, says so.  Really.
Comments can be bad for science. That's why, here at, we're shutting them off.
Yep.  Concluding that Pure Science (TM) has been hijacked by politics and other vile things, the articles will no longer have a place for comments and debate. I know, it's the Internet and sometimes the comments sections can get nasty.  But welcome to one more result of scientific and technological breakthroughs.  Like everything, there is good and bad.  In fact, in an unintentional bit of irony, PS might be missing the obvious lesson.  When it comes to scientific breakthroughs, you seldom get anything good without opening a whole new box of bad.  Welcome to Popular Science.
