Yes, so if comments aren't a major source of revenue and don't represent a large amount of the traffic, the best way to reward those who contribute, even in a way you may disagree with, is to talk down to them and make sure that they feel no need to further contribute, yes?If you don't want negative comments, just turn off comments. Clearly they're not a major source of concern or revenue so why not? I largely stopped commenting quite a while ago when all I ever saw in response to what I assumed were legitimate concerns or viewpoints, were flippant responses that conveyed nothing more than an 'I'm the blogger, you're the commenter therefore you are wrong' response. That's not a two-way communication deserving of respect. So if you're going to lambast the few people who do decide to comment, it'd be nice if you'd do the same for the authors.
