This blog is mostly for my own education and reflection and the comments reflect that, i.e. not a lot. Plus for every comment I get, I have to clean out around 1000 spams and even of those few legit comments, most are just ‘drop-ins’, lauding me for a wonderful article and by the way, here’s a link to my website, as if readers of this poky blog are interested in the website of commenters who add nothing to the post content. So I’ve joined lots of other bloggers, especially Matt Gemmell, who has gone into blog comments in detail and has reached the same conclusions as I reached. They’re not worth it. If someone feels an overwhelming urge to offer their opinion of one of my opinions, they can do it on their own blog where their opinion can be taken in context, rather than a quick drop-in on my blog, leaving a link to their own website.
