The Dirty Secret of Blogging

That's one of the dirty little secrets of blogging: the discussion in the comments are often better than the original entry. - Jeff Atwood

Hey Ram,
I agree with you...Many times,we have good discussion in the comments but sometimes,it gets dirty as well.
For eg. when I wrote a post on an Indian retail site,different retailers started fighting on the comments and the best part was that I was completely out of all that :)

The key reason is the lack of internet penetration and comfort level with the net based discussion forums, which keeps out lots of clued in people from weighing in
