Michael Arrington posted today on Ten Comments You Think Are Cool And Insightful But Aren’t, in which he responds en masse to various complaints and trolling that TechCrunch experiences on a regular basis.
No doubt Arrington makes some good points — and certainly the web is inhabited by many trolls in various shapes, sizes, and political affiliations. But rather than giving them all the attention, I think we should “accentuate the positive” and talk about the comments that really are cool and insightful. Besides, we get more of those kind anyway here at [GAS].
So, here are eleven categories of comments that we like to see on Geeks Are Sexy, linked to examples from you, our cool and insightful readers:
- Disagree with what we said, and tell us why.
- Provide more information.
- Ask pertinent questions.
- Heated discussion that stays on topic.
- Group participation.
- Make us laugh.
- Answer our questions.
- Take us up on our offer.
- “That’s great!“
- “Thanks for posting this!”
- “Geeks ARE sexy!“
