Blogs that allow comments (at least some) are much better than ones that won't

What's the point of reading a blog if you can't comment on it? Well, I guess you can learn some interesting stuff - but one of the best/most interesting & sometimes very entertaining aspects of the blog world is the comments - for me (and I think for a lot of other people). The blog Cinecultist, however, feels differently. Cinecultist celebrates the fact that they don't allow comments and is picking on a director who dares to comment on a review published in indieWIRE. Check it out here.

So, again, comments = good, no comments = not that good, bit dull.
(I do however like the Edward Hopper image on the Cinecultist blog, another topic for another time; blog design).

Also, by allowing comments the blog owner is creating room for a community of readers to form around the blog. Makes the blog more interesting.

Comments spam does sometimes force comments to be moderated... such as at Movie City Indie... which puts up a barrier that's annoying, but still prevents a few hundred pornographic or gambling links per day...

Hey Ray,

How're things in Chicago (hope i am remembering yer city of residence right :)?

Yeah, comments moderation is essential. Whenever I post anything remotely controversial - specially regarding race - I get at least a couple of un-printable comments.

Yeah, I am totally cool with comments moderation. But allowing relevant or any comments is what's cool about blogs & blogging - the communication is not one way like in old media.

All right, later on.
