My current policy is to not have the option to comment on posts be available on this blog. I thought long and hard about this before launching this site, and basically decided that the potential costs (to my own time and energy, and the potential for this to become yet another forum for offensive online harassment of myself or others, etc.) outweighed the benefits, especially after reading the below article on The Establishment’s website. Folks have plenty of ways to reference, comment and respond to posts that might appear on here without all this, including starting their own blog. I may change this policy at some point in the future, but that’s the deal for now.
