  1. Yglesias’ commenters are some mean S.O.B’s for the most part. It reminds me of the reasons I left chat boards for the blogging world. I will say that I never leave comments anywhere that requires a registration (Ezra Klein) and I prefer not to leave them where they are aren’t published right away.

    I also really like the feature you all have where you can see what your comment will look like before you post. It gives poor typists like myself a chance to occasionally catch a spelling or grammar error.

    The point I guess i am trying to make is that your comments section has all the elements I find enjoyable.Report

  2. Agreed re: the preview feature, Mike. I’m also glad that is back. I also like the email alert feature on follow up comments to a post on which you’ve commented, though I don’t personally use it.Report

  3. I use the email feature with heavily trafficked blogs where it’s harder to get back and check the post for follow-ups. It can be annoying when you lose interest in the thread but your still getting emails a week later. I’m sure there’s a way to turn that off…I’m just too lazy to investigate.Report
