Some of you have been writing in to complain that the comments section is going far off-topic too often. One possible solution is to start running “Open Threads” – posts without a topic meant for general discussion in the comments section. If I start running them, I’ll also start erasing off-topic comments in the other threads. Think this is a good idea?
Yes, start running open threads
No, leave the blog the way it is
