I committed myself long ago to avoiding public comments on Going Private. It is not that I do not love my readers (though sometimes I don't) but rather that comments seem to have a certain mass that weighs them down towards a very low common denominator. Limiting feedback to reader mail solves much of the "open mic" problem I see elsewhere on blogs with comments open. Just because, (the high quality of most reader mail being one reason) I have decided to experiment gently with comments. Accordingly, heavily moderated comments are open for my last two posts. Depending on how this goes I may selectively open other posts for comments (or I may not). Enjoy. Behave.
