A Few Comments on Comments

Like most bloggers, I love getting comments. It lets me know that someone is out there and gives me an opportunity for this to be a discussion, rather than just a series of short monologues. Comments are very good.

If you leave a comment, I usually post a reply, so be sure to check back. I definitely hope John from Australia read my response to his comment about my Crazy Horse post, for example.

It's also OK to not leave comments. You're welcome to just stop by occasionally, check out the posts, and then move on. Don't feel bad if you don't have the time, etc to leave a note. It's ok - really!

Just a question about your comment section ... Can you remove the word verification, or do you leave it there for a good reason?

Good question - I had a problem with spambots posting "comments" advertising all sorts of things, until I added the word verification. I'd rather not use it, but it's the only way I've found for keeping the comment spammers away.

I was wondering if that was the case. How come that doesn't happen on my blog tho? Not popular enough, I guess. :)

Also, anonymous comments sort of bug me. If you've got something to say, sign your name to it, doggone it, or don't say it...
