On Comments to the Magnes Zionist

This blog has been really active for around two months, and I am starting to get a lot of comments. It's hard enough to write posts (and you will notice that I am writing fewer) without having to respond to some very lengthy comments.

One option would be to publish all comments (except the nasty ones) and then respond as I see fit. I don't mind doing that, provided that people don't complain if I don't respond.Silence is not assent.

Another option would be for me to try to summarize some long comments in my own comment. I can see the day when I am swamped by comments citing Mitchell Bard chapter and verse, and it may be helpful to do that.

So...what I am trying to say is that if I don't publish your comment, and that offends you, I am sorry. I am not trying to censor you, but sometimes I just don't have the time, or sometimes I think that I have made my point clear. If you see this as an admission of defeat, well, fine.

But I see the comments not as an opportunity for ideological opponents to get their own point across -- start your own blog for that -- but as an opportunity for me to clarify what I have to say.

It's a really hard question. At my blog, I try to publish as much as I can & refute what I don't agree with. But then again I have a lot more time to spend on my blog than I imagine you do. Indeed, my wife has thought I'm pretty obsessive about it for years.

But it's no defeat or dishonor to acknowledge you have limits as a blogger--that you can't do everything or be all things to all readers.
