USA Today appears to have just introduced a new Pluck software-powered comment posting form at the bottom of each story. It's very similar to the comment form on the new template for U.S. community newspapers -- bringing greater uniformity to Gannett's papers.
I like the new format, although one USAT reader (circled comment, above) has a very different opinion. "What's with this new posting format?" harrumphs our_commie_prez. "It bites!"
