The BBC has today launched a new initiative as part of the popular but easy to manipulate 'Have Your Say' feature. Visitors to the BBC News site will now be able to take part in a threaded discussion forum, the prototype of which can be seen here:

[newsforums.bbc.co.uk...]

<edit>
The BBC have now pulled the new forum feature but stay tuned for an update - I will keep an eye on it and notify if it reapppears. (Nothing like a bit of live testing!)

Interesting - didn't the Beeb already have links to their discussion boards from the news stories? In the same vein, the Guardian also recently opened up "Comment is Free" on it's site, allowing single thread comments on op-eds.
