One of the innovations TheJournal.ie brought to online news in Ireland was making user interaction central to each story. This has resulted in a vibrant community growing up around the site, adding a different set of perspectives to each article published. However, as with all online discussions, it can sometimes get a little heated. This extension allows for a quick time-out by replacing the regular commenters with selected characters from either The Muppets, Modern Family, The Thick of It or The West Wing. The extension runs on TheJournal.ie, as well as sister site TheScore.ie. N.B. The Thick of It contains some very unparliamentary language, so may not be all that safe for work or for sensitive eyes. This extension is not associated with or endorsed by anyone at theJournal.ie, The Muppets, Modern Family, The Thick of It or The West Wing.
