I’m much more of the stay-and-chat sort myself. But I can see an argument that if people have something really substantive to say as a response, they should have it under their own control under their own banner.</p> Felicity Comment 2010-08-24T14:24:09+00:00 2010-08-24T14:24:09+00:00 <p>The purpose of the blog should decide the nature of comments. I understand the logic of “they can always write something in response on their blog,” but I see two problems with this: Most traceback systems don’t seem to work very well (or I never figured them out, which is pretty much the same thing), and a separate post on a separate blog loses the feeling of conversation I find in well-threaded blog comments.</p> Josh English
