I’m going to shut down the comments on our website. Sorry about that—the party got out of hand, and I’ve had enough for now.
There are three reasons. Two are technical, and one is my own failing.
First, the report-a-comment function isn’t working. Second, I’m not always receiving emails when new comments are posted, as I should. WestonWeb is old and decrepit, and some things just aren’t working as they ought to. As a result, some comments I won’t allow have been getting by me.
Finally, my enthusiasm for WestonWeb has always ebbed and flowed, but as you can maybe tell, it’s pretty low at the moment. I’m not checking in often enough to keep a handle on the corners of the site that have gotten out of hand.
So, lights are up, music is off. Thanks to those of you who came with love.
In other, related, news, I think I’m going to take a week or two off to see if I can rekindle some enthusiasm. I see that this is our 4000th published article, and it seems like as good a time as any for me to take a break.
