I’ve removed comments from this here blog. Not because of trolls. I get very few comments anyway so abuse hasn’t been a problem. Not because of spam. Disqus did a good job of preventing that. Then why? Because on the off chance I write anything interesting enough to comment on, most of the comments will likely end up on Friendfeed anyway, so why not just let them happen there instead? Friendfeed hasn’t fragmented the conversation, it’s stolen them completely. I’m cool with that.
