I love a good discussion. I like social networks, and I love being part of a community. But being part of a community where I’m the moderator and the principal content creator? That’s a lot of work. Aaaand maybe not all that healthy.
I’ve also found that it slurps up a lot of my time. Perhaps this is my ego speaking, but I think people would probably rather I spent time writing words and drawing pictures than reading comments and flushing spam-traps.
Ping-backs and trackbacks are enabled. If you want to discuss one of my posts, you can start a discussion in a space that you control.

Others who read my post can see that you’ve mentioned it, and can follow the link away from howardtayler.com’s comment-free zone, and into your space.
