A Brief Comment On Comments

I’ve finally done something I should have done a while ago and turned off comments for the site. I know a few of you have posted a comment here and there, and I appreciate it, but the main commenting about the content here happens on Facebook and Twitter and in nasty emails people send me when they don’t like something I write.

On one hand, comments haven’t been especially relevant here for at least four years and dealing with the spam ones is such an annoyance, but I’m also sad because the commenting feature is what kept me putting up new content here early on when I thought I was writing into the void. For a while there was a nice community here and I’ll always cherish those wild few years, but technology changes and I must change with it.

So raise a glass today to the comments of long ago and then go discuss this piece on Facebook and Twitter.
