    Hi,

    I’m curious about the downward trend in the number of comments at WordPress.com sites (see here: http://wordpress.com/stats/posting/).

    Could anybody explain the reason for this? Perhaps more spam comments are being caught (and thus are not being counted as comments).

    Regards,

    People are building different kind of sites – more as websites/information sources as discussions/blogs
    Like most of mine in fact

    Hi ivk2,

    That’s somethink I hadn’t thought, but it makes perfect sense as a contributing factor.

    Any other thoughts, anybody?

    I could have a lot more comments if I allowed disruptive people to post whatever comments they wanted. I’m not talking about spam. Lots of comments come from people looking for trouble. I discourage them, and ban them when necessary. I’d rather go for a quality blog, rather than a quarrelsome one with flames and food fights, regardless of the traffic it might generate.
