Yeah, the comments are the worst. But I don't pay much attention to them either, unless a story is missing important bits that I'm hoping to find filled in below. I also don't entirely condemn a site just for the people that read it, and I can appreciate the reasons why a site might want to use the Wild West model for comment moderation.
But a while back there were several articles in a short period that I just found distasteful. Haven't bothered with the site since then. I don't care about the technical stuff posted there, and all of the good leaks will eventually be picked up by less gullible/crazy feeds like Jesse, Mish, Debtwatch, sudden debt, calculated risk, etc.
