Gawker's commenter smackdown: more comments, more often

Just yesterday I wrote here about the shift toward less anonymous commenting happening on the web. And today Gawker Media released some interesting numbers proving how weighting reputation has worked as an incentive across their properties.

Last summer, Gawker introduced a tiered commenting system, giving more weight to comments from trusted readers and making it harder for other comments to get noticed. What has Gawker found since then?

Instituting a class system in their comments section has made more readers comment, more often.
