No Comments – Anybody who has used YouTube knows how useless the commenting section is. It takes time to load up and people have used profane language there which is unsuitable for young (or even mature) internet users.

    BagTheWeb looks nice, but I wonder if it's just a different way of repackaging content. Like saying the same thing, but in a different format.

    We often find bookmarked content from different sources aggregated in a single place, but what makes it memorable is the "freshness" of that content. The uniqueness factor.

      Agree, freshness is a VERY important factor but only for the time sensitive information. For most of the other articles we don't really bother about it that much. As long the information is not old and useless it's fine.
