I was looking forward to reading those, no doubt, increasingly ridiculous comments!
I can’t say I really understand what the point of closing comments when BoingBoing no longer has a commenting system, and there’s nothing to stop me starting a thread here called “Atheism vs Theism vs Agnosticsism vs Gnosticism”, and providing a link back to Mark’s post, if I really want to have a boring argument.
I guess it raises the bar a little higher? But I don’t really understand why you’d post something like that if you didn’t want to use it as a springboard invite discussion. On its own it isn’t very interesting.
Funny thing is, if you hadn’t posted your thread I’d never even have seen it, because I use this site bass-ackward since the split.
I currently see that comments are closed for this post also: http://boingboing.net/2013/09/25/easyjet-tells-law-professor-he.html
Mark Leiser, a law professor who writes a tech law column for The Drum, says he was denied boarding on an Easyjet flight after he tweeted critical remarks about the airline (he said that a delayed flight had caused a soldier on his flight to miss a connection and that Easyjet had refused to help). According to Leiser, a member of staff told him, “You’re not allowed to talk about Easyjet like that and then expect to get on a flight.”
I was figuring that was in case of Easyjet Attack-Lawyers.
I saw that too. The software bug explanation makes the most sense. But if it’s deliberate, I’d like to know on what basis a no-comments decision is made.
Right now I see that this topic does not have comments open: http://boingboing.net/2013/10/17/photographer-shoots-portraits.html It would be nice to know if this is a bug or if it was intentional. If it was intentional, then maybe the main text of the topic could say so.
