I try to respond to all comments because Golden Rule, and everybody likes attention, but sometimes I fall weeks behind because I’m disorganized and not very smart. If I’ve missed anything it’s not because I don’t like you, it’s because I’m disorganized and not very smart, so feel free to repeat yourself and bug me about it.
Most comments are one-offs, so I try to riff on the idea to demonstrate that I’ve read it and understand the idea. If I don’t understand, then I usually demonstrate that by accident so Heaviside can try to straighten me out. It’s a good system, methinks.
