A week ago, a friend from work wrote a post on a blog. Her comment was about a product that she found a little bit boring and that she doesn't understand the hype around this project.
Suddenly there was a new comment on her post from one of the 'important' paticipants in the blog community who wrote: 'boo to mean commenters!'
I am really irritated about this. If I write a comment it's my belief, i don't want to diss somebody, i want to share or discuss arguments. This comment has induced me to challenge what we expect from the comments.
My point of view is, there is a lot of work for a fluid blog. To be honest, I'm also happy, if somebody writes a nice and personally comment, but I am also interessted in straightforward comments and critics. And yes, normally I write comments when I like something or when I am impressed about a work. I think it is harder work, to grapple with a project; but it would be terrific to get also critical words.
I want to ask you dear bloggers, what do you expect from comments?
