There have been a few offenders lately (you know who you are) who have been leaving novels in the place of blog comments. We get it. You have a lot to say or you don’t agree or whatever. But no one is going to read a lick of what you say when you write a response five times longer than the actual blog post. If you have THAT much to say, perhaps you should start your own blog or maybe you could just send it to me in an email. I don’t really care. Just stop taking up so much real estate on the comments. Few people will read anything that long. Even I just end up skimming it for curse words and racial/sexual epithets. So, please. Don’t post a book. I don’t mind the occasional long comment, but damn, be respectful of the other folks who would like to leave a comment or two and don’t feel like wading through your college dissertation.
