I like the interaction between bloggers that comments give.
I can understand why some are disabling comments, but it feels a bit sad.
The other frustration is wordpress blogs that use a spam preventer..aktismet or something similar it is called. You need a wordpress account to comment, apparently...
Perhaps that is why some of those bloggers on wordpress are also on fb....at least you can pass on your views on the postings there!!
A couple of other blogs I cannot comment on, despite also being on blogger, as the comments box takes too long to load...I haven't worked that one out yet.
Still, well over 2000 posts and I still go on. I enjoy the interaction I get, apart from the occasional spam which is deleted from the comments inbox!
