I Love Blog and Forum Comments, But….


I love reading forum posts and blog comments – both on my blog and elsewhere. The majority of comments are thoughtful, insightful, useful, and helpful. Even many that don’t offer these are adjectives have some utility in that they show agreement or disagreement with a topic or comment. Typically, comments and posts are fun to read and help people learn about domain investing. To those of you whose thoughtful or thought provoking comments fit into this category – thank you!

On (thankfully) infrequent occasions, though, I read a post or comment somewhere that is just a terrible take on a topic. I have no idea what the person is thinking nor do I understand how on Earth they came to their conclusion based on my own analysis of the matter at hand.

  2. Elliot, this post makes me ask whatever happened to the most prolific domain blog commentator of them all, Jeff the “Metal Tiger”? I don’t recall seeing any comments by him in a long time.

    • Bill, were you around for the glory days of “Jeffrey A. Williams DIR. Internet Network Eng/SR. Java/CORBA Development Eng. Information Network Eng. Group. INEG. INC”.? That “person” is a leading light of the domain policy troll hall of fame. He never broke character, despite his well-settled non-existence as a provably extant person.
