No comments allowed on your blog : you’re lame

Leading lawyer blog publsihers are turning off the comments feature on their blog site. Many turn off the trackback feature as well. Are you really publishing a blog at that point? Looks like a Web site to me.

I have heard the standard response, ‘I get too many spam comments and spam trackback links, I do not have the time to deal with it.’ Spam comments on decent blog software never make it to the blog site – they are moderated and deleted. Both the comments and trackbacks are easily deleted on the backend of the blog software. Takes me a few minutes a day.

As the Scobleizer says, “No comments? Lame. That tells us you don’t think we’re important enough to listen to. So, go ahead. Be lame. Make my day.”
