Noting, of course, that every Awesome Thing is going to get negative as well as positive commentary, what do you think about people who just link with 'Go see this, it's awesome' (or even lengthy additional commentary) versus people who comment to say "This was awesome, thank you!". Or do you prefer people to do both? And what about people who think what you've created is awful and you should feel awful? Comment? Link? Both? Neither?
I'm genuinely curious what people think and feel about it in regards to themselves.
Assuming Positive: Linking vs Commenting: Fight!
Linking is awesomer than Commenting!
Commenting is better than Linking!
Link AND Comment! Two great tastes that taste great together
I am deep in Not Caring Country and I'm not coming back
Assuming Negative: Linking vs Commenting
Linking is better.
Commenting is better.
Link & Comment.
Keep your negative commentary to yourself, thank you.
Obligatory Melle question
It's like deja vu all over again....
Turnabout being fair play, I sometimes feel woeful when something I worked really hard on gets very few comments, even if it ends up getting a lot of hits that seem to be from "positive" responses (like a recent post I did that I can see doing the rounds of twitter links, but has garnered all of three comments). And yet, I rarely comment anywhere anymore, I mostly link, and I'm not sure that all spaces are generating discussion so much as they are generating back-patting. I don't know. It's very fraught, isn't it?
In more positive news, school starts soon and I am so excited I could dance. Late night openings at the library!!!!!
