Thinking about considering the idea of possibly putting comments back in (maybe)

Pros? Cons? Questions? Er... comments?

Update: Thanks for the feedback! I'll continue to think about considering the idea, etc.

Bring 'em on! Should be fun.

Yeah go for it Treach. Just as long as no-one uses the word "Moxie."

Bring 'em back, Jim!

Now maybe someone can fake being you on your own site ;-)

If you don't keep your comments function on, the terrorists win. Or has the time already passed for that joke? I'm behind on everything.

If you could guarantee at least one bona-fide Ronan appearance a week, the comments thing just might work.

Let the healing begin, baby. Also, it would spare you a whole lotta pestering e-mails from me, and I know that's an idea you can get behind.

You know I want your comments back. But that doesn't mean you get to slack off on your emails.

What's the worst that could happen? ...Oh well, yeah THAT.

"Comments good."

Oh surrrrrre. Now you want us back. Make up yer damn mind.

Oh, as long as I'm here, tell Sekk that the girls are meeting us at 8, not 9, and that I'm bringing the "stuff". He'll know what I mean.

Do not be the sucky guy with no comments. Be the unsucky guy with comments. It will not suck.

As long as you enable HTML within the comments, so people can post pictures of boobies.

Posted by: Jackie D at September 3, 2003 12:46 PM

Absolutely yes on comments! I find it's a good place to keep imaginary friends.

Posted by: Cathy Seipp at September 3, 2003 12:57 PM

I recently added comments to my site, and I just love 'em. Today we're discussing beer.

What would Puce do?

Have you taken leave of your limited senses? If it blows yer skirt up, go for it. I'm maintaining that it doesn't work on most blogs, and even those where it worked for awhile have tended to deteriorate the main content over time. I think it tends to make the proprietor of the blog narrow their posts to the vocal commenting audience, and that has made many of my once favorite blogs less interesting to me.

No on comments! Yes on Bustamante!

Maybe some people would find this a nice place to come clean, as it were...

Posted by: Steve of Norway at September 3, 2003 05:59 PM

YAY! Moxie was right! JK!JK!JK! (Don't want to screw this up!) Hey, Tim Blair was the first comment on this, take it as a sign.
