I’ve noticed something recently, and it’s started to really bug me: more and more people are removing the date/time from comments on their entries. It doesn’t sound like a major offence, and up until the past few weeks it didn’t even cross my mind as a “blogging faux pas”, but I can see now why others have nagged me in the past about having date/time on my comments.
I guess the biggest reason that it has become an issue is because I’ve not been around. People reply to comments I’ve left and I don’t know when, or whether it’s worth me replying — will people remember to check back for my $0.02? Am I going to reply to something no longer relevant? Am I talking to myself, ultimately?
I can’t think of a logical reason why you’d remove the date or time from comments, so do us all a favour and keep it in … at the very least the date or a mark of sorts to signify that it’s not been 10 years since anyone else left their feedback. Please? :)
