Comments have been turned back on

Comments have been turned back on, but will be moderated. Those I consider sub-standard will be rejected with no explanation.

Of those comments which do appear, I may not have the time to respond to all (or even most) of them.


"... weblogs and message boards are different. ... Weblog topics have comments and message board topics have replies. This subtle difference in syntax reveals a difference in the roles. The word comment for weblogs implies that the author does not need further participation to reach a goal-comment if you want. Reply, on the other hand, implies that participation is explicitly requested by the poster. … weblogs do not depend on responses to provide value. ... weblogs can turn-off comments and depend on new topics from the webloggers for value. ..."

Genesis 5:3-5. 3When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth. 4After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. 5Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.
