  5. Clearly your open minded and receptive to other ideas. Many people in the online community are a little more totalitarian. keep it up ;D Of course– and I probably shouldn’t even have to say this– people are free to run their own websites as they see fit. But I get the highest value from blogs where either the author’s writing is so outstanding that the lack of comments isn’t material a combination of good writing and good comments
