There have been a number of comments posted on my blog where the commenter has expressed a view that either disputes something I said or opposes my viewpoint. I want to say thank you to everyone who takes the time to express their opinions here even when they are 180 degrees from what I post.
I have been a domain investor for a few years and recently moved to domain development. As they say, I know enough about a lot of things to be dangerous but I still don’t consider myself an expert in many areas. There are many ways to be successful online, and a lot of people have different experiences than mine. Sharing them is what makes my blog more interesting, and I appreciate all comments.
Unless a comment gets caught by my Askimet spam filter or is abusive to me or someone else, I will approve it. I don’t censor my blog comments because I don’t think it’s right to do that and it would make for an uninteresting one-way discussion if I only posted comments that were in agreement with what I wrote. Whether we agree or disagree, I like to think that I’d still go out for a coffee or meal with just about everyone who posts here. I’ve learned a lot from you, and I hope you’ve also learned a lot from others who have posted comments here.
If you write a comment and it doesn’t show up, it’s more than likely that it ended up getting blocked by Askimet, so just drop me a note to let me know. It also might be that I am busy on another project or my Blackberry doesn’t have reception. I get hundreds of spam comments a day, and some do get filtered in error. If you wrote something rude or abusive, I probably won’t post it because that’s not constructive.
