Also, commenting on other peoples blogs is inconvenient because you have to manually go back and check whether you’ve been flamed 😛 or not 🙂
This is a mighty good point. It would be nice if there was a better way to handle comments. They lend themselves to a message board format but in practical terms that are more like shouts from the peanut gallery.
Personally, I tend to only leave a comment if it does not require a response. Otherwise I make my own blog entry or leave the entire subject to fade into memory.
