The Illawarra Mercury knows how important it is for our subscribers to have a conversation about the news in a safe environment away from the trolls.
What our readers have to say matters to our journalism, and often, makes our reporting better.
We welcome readers commenting on our stories, sharing their opinions on issues and discussing different viewpoints.
We have listened to your feedback about our website's comment platform and have made it a whole lot easier for you to have your say.
Readers will now need only one log-in to access news and comments on the Mercury website.
This will allow you to share your view on stories we have opened for comments. It also lets you reply to others who have commented and follow the conversations that interest you.
How do I comment:
You must be signed in to the Mercury as a registered user. Subscribers can use the same log-in they use to access their website subscription.
