As of now, readers can comment on my blog, but the comment won’t appear to the public. Instead, I will get the comment privately and will respond. I think if I open up the comments section and it becomes like a discussion forum, there will be an additional responsibility for me and this time around, difficult for me. So zero-comments policy, as opposed to no-comments policy.
Note however: I really like it if someone comments. It is the desire to interact which has led me to blog.
