As most of you ... well ... many of you ... well ... some of you know, I usually answer comments just before the next post - and I do so by generating a comment of my own on a post that references all of the comments that exist at the time of my comment.
I know. If you read it two or three times it actually makes sense.
I am going to do some searching and see if I can't find way to handle comments so that I respond to each individual comment and commentor via email. I have seen sites with things like Disqus, for example, and the site owner has responded to my comments individually. Via email. And I find I like that methodology.
I get all my comments, as most of you do, in email. I would REALLY like to be able to respond to each email, but most of the comments come from "no-reply" - and that's frustrating. If you have been thoughtful enough to comment, I would like to acknowledge that comment, and I can't do that to a "no-reply". And I don't have any way to guarantee that a commentor knows that he/she should come back to find my reply to a comment.
So I'm going to find a way to respond to each and every comment via email - and my ability to respond to your comment should NOT depend on how you've signed up for your blog and configured your stuff.
Know what I mean?
