Don't expect direct replies

Now that the blog is well launched and other contributors are writing posts, I generally will not directly reply to comments. I may reply indirectly in later posts, but I have enough else to do in my life that responding to blog comments is not my top priority. My silence does not mean agreement or disagreement with comments. I will continue to read comments, and I appreciate those who devote thought to writing them.
