The only comments that I receive are spam anyway, so I’m just going to turn comments off entirely. I’m not closing them for the posts that still have comments open, because they’re set to close after a few days anyway. From this point out, they should never even open on new posts/pages.
I kind of expected any discussion to come up when I share posts to Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr anyway, and that there would seldom be any real discussion here. Anyway, turning them off here means I don’t have to sink any time into clearing out the spam filter, so it’s one less thing I can use to distract myself from writing, etc.
