Here’s a fun party question: Who are your favorite commenters? Now, let’s limit this in scope a little. I’m defining “commenters” as people who comment only, and do not operate a blog themselves. So no matter how much you like comments from Clark Goble or Jim Faulconer or Heather Oman or AmyB or any other blog poster, they’re not part of this contest. We’ll talk about them in other threads. This thread is for the commenters who contribute so much to bloggernacle discussions, and do so in the most unobtrusive and un-self-aggrandizing way: By commenting only.
So this thread is for the random Johns and MikeInWeHos and greenfrogs of the bloggernacle. It’s for Matt Thurston and Naomi Frandsen and Brian Gibson. It’s for folks of all political persuasions, from obi-wan to bbell. Heaven knows, it’s definitely for D. Fletcher. And it’s for the many, many other commenters who contribute so much to our blog conversations yet spend little time in the limelight, whose names I’m probably forgetting as I type this post. (Annegb is, alas, not eligible for this thread, since she now operates her own blog).
The bloggernacle has a lot of great commenters, and we don’t express our appreciation often enough; our community couldn’t be what it is without you, our many commenters.
Who are some of your favorite (non-blogging) commenters, and why?
