A year ago I published the following post. I feel a gentle reminder is in order ...
I don't read many blogs it's true, but I have never seen a blog where the comments are as long as some of the comments posted here. Some are more like mini articles - 500 to 1000 words or more. No offence, but if you want to write at such length, create your own blog!
Alternatively, submit them as an article to an online magazine like Spiked or The Free Society.
It's my fault. I should have nipped it in the bud a long time ago. Anyway, I'd be grateful if you could keep your comments short (200 words max), sharp and to the point of the thread. Less is more. In future unnecessarily long comments, and those that bear little relation to the thread, may be deleted (depending on how I'm feeling at the time).
Er, that's it.
