Tom and I have long said that comments make the blog better. I still believe that to be true.
Laura’s most recent comment on my blog was this:
“I was going to comment but everyone else’s comments make me not take this seriously.”
People are less likely to post real comments because of all the other comments that are just trying to get laughs. For that reason, I’m going to do something I’ve never regularly done before on this blog, and start deleting comments (note – your comment will still post automatically, it just may be deleted later, I’m not approving / rejecting each comment before it’s published).
There’s plenty of room for humor in comments, but as of late, I agree with Laura that the comments have been too much and I have to draw the line somewhere.
It’s nothing personal, and I appreciate that people even take the time to comment, but some recent comments don’t contribute anything and scare off others from commenting. To those who have recently posted “good” comments, thank you and keep going. Comments make the blog fun.
