whne comments are deactivated no "leave a comment link"

    In several themes (e. g. structure Theme) there are the "leave a comment link" even if comments are disabled

    This looks unprofessional / irritating to the user

    I don't want to discuss wheter it is a good idea to deactivate the comment. As WordPress becomes more and more suited to host a normal website, too (e.g. pages and custom menu feature) and it is possible to deactivate comments, there should be no "Leave a comment" Links if comments are deactivated.

    This was already discussed here: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/can-i-remove-leave-a-comment-link?replies=14
    it's obiously an issue for several people

    The blog I need help with is ebiztcf.wordpress.com.

  2. There is no "issue" from the wordpress.com point of view. Blogs are for communication purposes and websites are for one-way noticeboard posting.
    (1) Blogs provide for inline commenting as they are aimed at engaging readers in discussion - websites don't;
    (2) Blogs have RSS feeds so subscribers can be immediately updated following publication of new posts - websites don't;
    (3) Blogs have Google juice and PageRanks - websites don't .

    wordpress.com is a blogging platform. and they provide free hosting for free blogs. In addition a CSS editing upgrade has been provided. If you are considering purchasing the upgrade, you can go to Appearance > Edit CSS. There wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try before you buy.

    If that doesn't suit you then there are many free website hosts you can find in the internet that are set up to accommodate your need for a one-way noticeboard.
