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...
