I have decided to turn off the comment functionality on this blog. I used to believe strongly that this would be the best place for any discussion to take place but this is clearly utopian. Most discussion about blog posts inevitably occurs on social media like Twitter and Facebook. At my advanced age I find it increasingly harder to keep track off all these multiple parallel streams and I predict soon I’ll find it even harder. Most of the comments here were often rehashing discussions I already had elsewhere as well while some of them were completely pointless. There was also the occasional joker who just took a dump on my lawn but didn’t bother to stick around for a chat. So now I am consolidating my resources. If you have a comment ping me a reply on Twitter (I always tweet out the link to a new post), respond via another blog post, or if you prefer a private conversation you can always email me.
