When I first thought of adding a commenting system, I was hesitant. I didn't want hecklers and I didn't want any distractions to me posting. But, being one always leaning toward Nietzsche's experimentation clause, I decided to try it out. It was nice, and yes, it did add another dimension to my site. But, alas, I realized that I enjoyed my blog primarily because it gave me a space to be a tyrant.
In High School and even in College, I've always found myself in an outspoken position. Rather than speaking out, though, I decided to save my social currency by batting the politically correct party line. Nonetheless, I still have the urge to speak out on everything, and so my blog provides me a space to let me express myself.
I'll experiment with removing the commenting system, and I'll see if II miss it. Cheers.
