"They seem to have discovered that unmoderated comment threads are worthless."

Well, okay, the comment threads are worthless, but unmoderated comments sections are golden. It's all about the page clicks. The page clicks from people who spew vile nonsense are worth just as much toward ad revenue as page clicks from thoughtful, polite people. Unmoderated comments sections might actually invite more page clicks (hate spewers will stop visiting sites where their spew gets moderated out).
