Repost: Comments Commentary

Via John Gruber at DaringFireball, Matt Gemmell has a post that describes the pros and cons of allowing comments on a website.

I’ve long been of the view that you really should have (moderated) comments if you want to say that you have a blog.  Of course, given that Gruber doesn’t allow comments, I’d then have to figure out what DaringFireball is, if not a blog, and if that’s a difference that makes a difference.

In any event, none of the comments in the linked post favors the Rob Conery patented “turn on comments until you start getting comments you don’t like, then start deleting those, and then close them entirely, and then complain about the comments that disagreed while acting unreasonably wounded about it” system.

Anyway, if comments commentary is your sort of thing (which, let’s face it, is a somewhat esoteric topic), give it a look.
