On the subject of commenters…

These guys are probably my favourite double act on the web. They go from the deadly serious to the apparently trivial. Here’s Mickey Kaus and Bob Wright talking about commenters on blogs and what they mean. Bob’s a fan and thinks they add something vital to the Bloggingheads.tv site. Mickey’s a sceptic, and doesn’t permit comments on his own blog. It gets a bit hard core just about ten minutes in, where Mickey says “one of the bad things [about the internet] is that you pay attention to your commenters”. Hmmm…

    I suspect there is a good reason why Kaus doesn’t allow comments on his blog.

    That’s just what Bob said. That Edwards ‘story’ is still in train btw…

    Kinell! Maybe I got them on a bad day but those guys are awful. (I made it to the 10 minute mark).

    Your “commenters” have spoken:
    232 comments on Ballymena (many of which are childish)
    19 on Councillor of the Week & local democracy threads.

    Always good to know your audience.
