Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

The long tail of comments

Sometimes people like to turn off old comments. Eventually comment spam will hit here, and I might feel the desire too. But I hope not. For instance, my post Respecting the Programmer has continued to get comments. Mostly in response to the thread Disrespecting the non-American Programmer, but that's okay. By now the comments are about 4x the size of the original post. (I'm glad that the comments are threaded, that's what makes these long threads readable.)
