Spin Sucks

The time has arrived. The Livefyre commenting system is coming to Toke of the Town. The developers plan to push the button tomorrow.
Here are a few things you Toke-sters should know about Livefyre to avoid freaking yourselves out:
When conversation is happening about an article on Facebook or Twitter, you can now see that conversation within the commenting thread. You can also tag and import your friends from Twitter and Facebook within the comment stream yourself. (Find yourself losing ground in one of Toke’s infamous comment flame-wars? Recruit your Twitter and Facebook friends to pitch in on your side!)

If all goes according to plan, Toke of the Town, along with all its Village Voice Media sister sites, will be rolling out the new Livefyre commenting system throughout the day tomorrow (Friday).

It just might take a little while for all the older comments to be imported into the new system and appear.
Here are a few relevant points about the new Livefyre commenting system and the allied My Voice Nation, a global profile system.

This was a naked political move. Please call the NCI public inquiry phone line at 301-435-3848 or email them at
