I’ve been meaning for some time to write a tribute to the people who regularly comment on this blog.
Other than those who post under their real names, I have no idea who they are. But their comments are almost invariably thoughtful, articulate and erudite.
I hope followers of this blog take the trouble to read them, because they often greatly enhance and expand on whatever I’ve said, to the extent that I sometimes think it’s they, not I, who should be blogging.
Crucially, in addition to the qualities listed above, they are overwhelmingly civil – a virtue not to be undervalued when so much online content is petty, mean-spirited and toxic.
So thank you, whoever you are.
