With someone like PT (who is probably more thoughtful and cares more about other people than most in this world!) removes comments from her blog, I feel pretty confident that it's been well thought out and probably debated for some time.
That said, I can't tell her so, but I can't because…well, the comments are gone.
There are times when I don't allow comments, but that's usually because it's a very personal issue. But most of the time – the vast majority of the time – I want to hear from you. I've gotten more out of your thoughts, I suspect, than you have from mine. And I've made a few friends along the way.
So…comments welcome (unless I say otherwise and then comments off, but until then…comments welcome!)
