Deleting comments is dumb

So, the other day, I saw this in my RSS feed (“Daddy, what’s an RSS feed?  Do you play CDs with that?”).  As it happens, I was looking for something quick to do this sort of thing, so it happened along at a good point.

For some reason, a broken URL version appeared again in my feed today.  Not sure what was up with that, so went back to the post to make sure it was the same.

It was, except it looked different.  Hmm….oh.  There had been some comments, but they were gone, and comments were closed, thusly:

But, clearly, there were comments.  You can see that in the ‘recent comments’:

Hmm, wonder what dotnetchris had to say.  Probably something I would disagree with, but whatever.

Now, the comments, as I recall, weren’t of a lot of value.  Matt was questioning why anyone would do such a thing instead of just use MSpec, or something.

Anyway, it’s just dumb to delete comments if you have a comment section (you can moderate them of course).  I mean, channel your inner Rob Conery all you want, but it just makes you look silly.

IMO.
