Comments here and elsewhere


It’s no secret that I don’t believe in comments (and no, I’m not going to argue about this any longer). One of the consequences of that is that I also don’t comment anywhere. A friend just contacted me to let me know about a comment that someone else left under my name. Given the kind of stuff I’ve seen in comments, I’m not surprised about this, and I have no idea of telling how often it has happened before (and I’m sure it will happen again). In any case, if you see what looks like a comment by me on your blog it’s a fake (you can use simple internet tools to verify this, the comment left on my friend’s blog originated from Germany). If I need to comment on anything I’ll use email.
