Comments have been off by default while I got myself settled. I didn't want to wrangle spam while I was still shaking the place down, and I didn't expect I'd be getting any non-spam comments on such a new blog.
The blog's still new, and still doesn't have enough of a readership to attract many comments, but the trade-off between managing spam and possibly missing out on good conversations has tilted in favor of allowing comments.
Right now, comment threads are set to close after seven days, to keep spam manageable. If I start seeing comment threads outgrowing that time limit, I'll adjust accordingly.
I've also put up a comments policy. I expect that will evolve over time, but for now I want to keep it as simple as possible, because having a complex comment policy on a site with no comments is silly.
So yeah, comments. Care to leave one?
