Yesterday, we gave you the top 20 Ars stories of the year in terms of number of readers. Today, it's time for a quite different list: the 20 stories with the largest number of comments. As a free bonus, we're including both the "highest-rated" and the "most insightful" user comment attached to each piece. If you're a regular Ars commenter, who knows? You might even find your own contribution immortalized here.

As you might expect, the stories on this list touch on a lot of hot-button topics, including neo-Nazis, opsec bungles by politicians, censorship, anti-vaxxers, and even copyright policy. Things are about to get spicy. Let's get to the controversy!
