In the past few months, I’ve changed the rules about commenting here on MS.com. I think I forgot to properly explain why I changed the rules about character limit and multi-posting.
If you take away one piece of information from here today, let it be this: if you edit your post and delete the original text, it makes it harder for me to include you in a “responses to comments” post. I want to include your thoughts, so don’t erase them, and don’t multi-post 🙂
The comments section is limited in order to keep it manageable for me to pick through, and to challenge you to be succinct and thoughtful. Don’t waste words–slow down, and say what you need to say in the most direct way you can!
