I had an observation that I have noticed on my blog (among others). It would seem that the first commenter sets the stage for all the other comments that follow. This seems to be true even when the first comment is off topic.
I wanted to suggest that you post your comment first and then read the other comments. If you feel compelled, you can add another comment afterwards.
You will also notice that I have been making some changes to my comment field. The TypeKey authentication did not work, however my blog will have to get reacquainted with you before your comments get published automatically. Don’t be discouraged; your comment will arrive to the site shortly. IF you have a TypeKey account, please log in to be added to my authenticated commentors listing.
And if any of you lurkers want to come out and say “hello,” this is a perfect time to do it. I’d love to hear from you.
