Google drops news commentary feature

The AP reports that Google has quietly dropped a feature that allowed people mentioned in news stories to comment on the articles. The Mountain View company said Wednesday that it ended the experiment in May when it redesigned the news section of its Web site.
It apparently wasn't getting enough use to justify keeping it. As part of the service, Google spent time and money verifying the identities of the commentators, AP reported
