Quoted from Lydia McGrew:
Comments are closed for cause. The reasons have to do with particular annoying readers and the fact that I prefer to put this out there for posterity and do other things with my time than waste it responding to those particular annoying readers. I will be crossposting at Extra Thoughts, where comments are fully moderated. There are plenty of people whose comments I’d be happy to hear in a moderated environment.
Lydia McGrew wants to put her post out there “for posterity” but does not want to engage with “particular annoying readers”. She will only allow other comments, from people she likes, to be made about her post in a heavily moderated environment.
Lydia has made it clear that her post is out there for people to read and she only want to engage in a debate she has full moderated control over. Given that, I hope you understand why, even though I always quote her directly and have linked directly to her original post, I’m not interested in playing this game on her terms.
