20,000 comments and counting…

panel of my blog program.

I’ve been watching my comment counter creep up to 20,000 the last few weeks and as I write this is already up to 20,106!

It took about 15 months to reach 10,000 comments and less than half that to reach 20,000.

People always ask me if I read every one of them. The answer is yes, I do. I read and/or at least scan each and every one of them. I take comments very seriously and reading them every day is a treasured part of my job. I feel they are one of the most important parts of this site.

And while some folks have trouble playing nice and staying on-topic, I’m amazed at how few problems I’ve had. I’ve never banned anyone and I’ve only deleted and/or censored comments on a few rare occasions.

I am grateful for all of your contributions and insights. Your feedback is a rich and valuable resource to me and the community.

Thank you…and keep it coming!

No way that I’ll ever leave a comment on a post about comments. That’s way too meta- for me.

Oh, wait.

Ditto vseven. Where’s the payment plan? Money is burning a hole in this unemployed college student’s pocket. (I’m not joking: I think most all of us want to contribute).

Hey Bearhat. Unfortunately someone planned a meeting that I’m curious about attending…. so no racing for me this week. But being at the race last week did inspire me.. I’ve actually been out on the bike a few times lately and I plan to keep it up. See you out there!
