I know she's a master at initiating discussion.
She is up to her tricks again.
Here are my thoughts (I'm going to be brief!)
If we are to have posts with no commenting, forget about the blog. Forget the whole Web 2.0 thing! Just revert to the web page blurb:
“Oh, you can go scribble your opinion somewhere for all I care.Get rid of the mailto:email@example.com link at the bottom of the page. We don’t want to be festooned with unwanted emails.
Don’t expect me to read it when you post it to me, snail-mail.”
Yes, a wonderful thing is this 20th century thought-delivery-idea.
It’s like the archer with the poisoned arrow says: “This’ll shut you up!”
When asked if anyone disagrees, you can say “No” with impunity.
Those who concur. . . same answer.
Remember what the foreign adviser says in Sid Meier’s Civilization when you successfully wipe out all other civilisations.
“Make more friends!”
