Why do people comment?

Why do folks record their comments on the blogs?

May be for one or more of these reasons:

  • They have something to say in order to amplify, rebut or differ on the content of the blog entry – the whole or part of it.
  • To satiate the urge to say something on the subject – just for the heck of it
  • To be read by others – sort of a mini-blog of oneself
  • To draw visitors to the commenters’ own blogs
  • Not to be left out!

Have I left out any? (I may not be an expert on the subject since my blog manages to attract very few commentators!)

    Oh god, unfetter the humankind from the stranglehold of time over them!

    And I hold a degree on such useless pursuits!! 🙂
