What do you think?I think this may completely change the dynamics of commenting on the site as the reward for commenting has changed dramatically. Now that there is a specific, external reward, we should see new behaviors emerge as a result of seeking that reward.
The question is, will this improve the quality of the Huffington Post to readers? If comments become skewed somehow as a result of efforts to become featured, I don't think so. We can only wait to see what develops.
