With the exception of posts that pontificate on the deeper meaning of libertarianism or other political philosophies, the number of comments a given post (exclusive of “Off the Cuff” posts) at the League of Ordinary Gentlemen will receive is in inverse proportion to the degree of effort and consideration put into the original post.
This hypothesis does not hold that posts with large numbers of comments are inherently bad, just that they tend to be less temperate and involve less research. It also does not hold that posts with small numbers of comments are inherently good, just that they tend be more temperate and involve more research.
Finally, the hypothesis says nothing about the degree of effort and consideration put into the comments in a given thread.
This be an open thread, all.
