XKCD How the Heartbleed Bug Works

No Comments?

Someone asked me through another channel why there was nowhere to leave comments. The answer is, time. I just don’t have a lot of it. I’m taking care of a 5 year old and a 5 month old all day. My wife is awesome about me spending time on the blog (writing or messing with code) once she gets home, but I like to see her too, so I average about an hour or two per night tops.

Moderating comments and interacting with a blog community is very time consuming. I feel that if I leave the comments open I would owe it to the readers (few as they might be) to make sure the comments are worth reading and don’t misinform the reader. Unfortunately, with the topics I’ve covered, I have already received a couple crazed comments when I had them turned on. I also have to know myself a little. I know when I get comments that are silly or wrong, I feel compelled to respond. I just don’t have time to do so.

So, do I just let the site get over-run by junk? Delete everything I don’t have time to respond to? Neither of those are particularly appealing to me. The downside is that I might miss out on accurate corrections, good discussion, and words of encouragement. It isn’t an easy decision for me, but for now I’m keeping comments turned off.
