Rotten Tomatoes Disables 'TDKR' Comments
After TOS Violations
Published: 07/20/2012 01:18am
Meta-review site Rotten Tomatoes has disabled commenting on reviews of The Dark Knight Rises, the site announced this week, after comments on negative reviews got too heated and violated the sites Terms of Service, which prohibit threats and hate speech. Reviews are running overwhelmingly positive (87% positive as of this writing), but apparently the few negative reviews were enough to set off some who hadn’t seen the movie.
Interest was intense; traffic to the site where the first negative review originated crashed the site and the link to the site from Rotten Tomatoes was temporarily disabled at the reviewer’s request.
The film is expected to open huge despite the fact that there’s no 3D version (see "'Dark Knight Rises' Tracking as Monster Hit").
