One of the weird things about blogs is how you get used to commenters being around, and then, a couple months later, you notice they aren’t around anymore.
Sometimes people send you letters telling you “You suck because you said XXX and I am done with you, you filthy GOP/Democratic shill” and you say “Ok, then!” and move on with your life. But other times, they just slide away. Maybe they got a new job or relationship and don’t have the time, maybe they finally got fed up with me and the others, maybe they are just lurking, or maybe they died. It’s just interesting to contemplate all the things that could happen.
At any rate, can you think of any commenters who used to be here, but who no longer are? Are you one of those people who used to comment a great deal but quit?
