I turned off comments on this blog.
We had a good run, but comments no longer add value to this site.
- SPAM comments are not worth dealing with, both the robot generated kind and by people looking to be “influencers.”
- There is no meaningful conversation in the comments. None.
- There are more than enough ways to comment on my blog thoughtfully through Twitter, Facebook and other social channels, like your own crappy blog.
Some people will argue that a blog isn’t a blog without comments. I say fuck them.
You can’t add to a conversation after skimming a blog post. You’re giving a half-hearted attempt at best. You’re most likely trying to make yourself look smart to a bunch of strangers on the internet.
All old comments will be archived and displayed. But moving forward, I’m done with comments.
