    • My real ninja credentials: @thenextwave
    • My real ninja credentials: The city of Dayton, Ohio, learned that lesson the hard way in 1997, after it was sued by a man who’d been kicked out of a public commission meeting for wearing a ninja mask. An appeals court ruled in favor of the ninja, finding that his menacing attire was a protected form of speech this despite the fact that everyone knows ninjas don’t talk.

    • Why comments? @thenextwave
    • Why comments? But every time we've had an explosive thread on Pet Connection, for example, the commentary has deepened and enriched the original post. It's given the bloggers an opportunity to refine our arguments, to stretch the parameters of our thinking, to change our readers' minds, or even, perhaps most valuably, our own. “Real blogs allow comments” http://goo.gl/V9OQ @thenextwave
    • Why no comments? @thenextwave
    • Why no comments? For most sites, though, comments are worse than useless. The anonymity of the Internet inspires hit-and-run attacks, unintelligible ramblings, and truckloads of spam. I believe that comments are evil by default, and the sites above that seem to have healthy communities are blessed flukes. “Why I Don’t Allow Comments, and More on Everything Buckets” http://goo.gl/8mmb @thenextwave
    • COMMENTS ARE USER GENERATED CONTENT @thenextwave
    • COMMENTS ARE CURRENCY @thenextwave

    • Harriet Klausner I was an acquisitions librarian in Pennsylvania and wrote a monthy review column of recommended reads. I found I liked reviewing and went on to freelance after my son was born. I have 2 dogs, a cairn and a pom, and four cats. Oh, I have a 21 year old son and a husband who wants to but is nowhere near retiring. I am a speed reader( a gift I was born with) and read two books a day. @thenextwave
