Here’s my going line on comments v. e-mail:

If you post a comment, I’m going to feel free to comment on it publicly, since, after all, it’s a public comment. I’ll either respond in the thread or if it’s especially interesting to me, make an entry out of it.

If you send me an e-mail about something I’ve written, I’m going to assume it’s private communication and will respond in e-mail only unless you’ve specifically noted it’s available for public comment and/or I’ve asked you to allow me to mention it and you’ve agreed.

So: Comments — public. E-mail — private. Either way, it’ll divert me from work. Mmmm… short attention sp– look! A pony!

What the hell, Tolstoy? This is like “War & Peace II,” three or four paragraphs at a time.

Jesus H.! Go to MT, and now you won’t/can’t stop. Got complaints because you’ve got too much paid writing and this might become a distraction? How about those of us who read? I mean, I have to go to work 2-4 days a week, 4-6 hours at a time. Part-time is a tough gig, you know?
