Last week, Chris Pirillo turned off anonymous comments, or even worse, required you to login before you comment. Leading up to that post (and including it), he was getting 7-15 comments per blog entry. Now he gets 0 or 1 comments on most posts.  I think he got some bad advice. I've seen this over and over, where bloggers eventually disable comments to avoid SPAM or cyber-stalkers. It's too bad! It's turning the 2-way Web back into a 1-way Web. Of course, there's always trackbacks. I personally stopped sending trackbacks months ago, because most blogs turned off in-coming trackbacks to avoid SPAM. I'm gonna re-enable trackbacks this week, to see if any actually get thru (doubt it).

It will be interesting to see what happens when that new secret app that Scobel has been hinting about will change this space.
