Comments and replies

First of all, I’d like to apologize for not responding promptly (or ever) to comments here on this site. But the thing is, 98% of the comments I get here are of the drive-by variety, i.e. someone just says thanks for this or asks a quick question, and when I respond I very rarely get any acknowledgement that the original poster even saw what I wrote. Which is perfectly fine — I do that myself from time to time and no one can realistically keep track of every site visited and comment posted, just for the sake of keeping the discussion going or being polite or whatever.

So, I’ve grown kind of lax when it comes to replying to comments here. I try, but often they fly under my radar (as gmail sometimes sends the notification emails to my spam folder, for some reason) and when I log in on the site and discover them weeks later, it usually feels like a waste of time replying.

Anyway. I’m not saying don’t comment. Please do. It’s encouraging to see that my site actually gets a fair number of visitors. But, if you have something that you really want me to respond to it’s probably a safer bet dropping me an email through the contact form (these DO get through) or posting on the forum. Facebook is a third option, though I don’t hang out there as much as I used to.

Just letting you know so you don’t think I’m a stuck-up bastard for not replying.
