I'm a little bummed that D Magazine has taken the easy way out and is not permitting comments on their weblog. I've always kinda liked D – even though I approach life at a slightly different angle than most of their editors.
I broached the comments/trackback subject with one of their editors, but it sounds like they are pretty set in their ways – at least for now. They don't want to have to spend time "editing comments".
Loose translation: "We loves us some money, but the public is just so…ugh."
