Comment Symmetry

For the record, I do not believe that a blog has to have comments to be a "real blog", no matter what people say. The whole point of blogging is that one gets a space to say things the way they are, personally and in the same "voice" as anything said privately, in a place that has a unique and permanent URL so it can be referenced. The right way to comment on a blog at any length other than the passing comment is to write it on your own blog and link.

Having said that, there's a certain delicious symmetry (and rumour-related timeliness?) to seeing on the same day JBoss closing down comments on its blogs and Jonathan Schwartz opening his blog up for comments...
