UPDATE: She is calling her decision Comments Vacation.
I'm not going to speculate as to why I believe she turned off the comments, because, one, it's not going to change anything and two, I probably contributed to the decision. So, if anything I should be apologizing for contributing to the ruination of a good thing.
Althouse longtime commenter Freeman Hunt suggested*....
"Please blog at your own blogs and link to me. I notice where I'm getting linked, and can link to your blogs to include you here."
Make it so. (captain Picard) -
ESPN went to a different commenter format themselves but I chose not to follow them because the only choice available to comment will be via Facebook, and I'm not a Facebook enthusiast. Facebook is not for me.
So, hopefully I'll continue to comment, even if at least for a while, it will just be for myself.
Correction* - It was Althouse that suggested commenters blog at their own blog.
