Update on September 29, 2014: Thanks to a new plugin, I’ve brought comments back to this site.
For some reason Askimet has been letting through an increasing amount of comment spam over the last month. It’s not uncommon for me to catch five or six spam comments a day live on the site.
Accordingly, I’ve decided to turn comments off on the site.
I’m not wild about doing this. I think the web is better with open conversation. But comment spam was becoming an annoying chore that was taking up time I could spend doing other things.
What I care about is conversations, and I want to make sure those are still able to happen, so in lieu of comments, I’m inviting people to connect with me on Twitter at @ChrisFerdinandi, or to send me an email. Hopefully that results in rich conversation around some awesome topics.
