| I am often asked why there is not a commenting system at Kamat's Potpourri.|
The No.1 reason is that we cannot handle the volume of feedback. For us, web publishing is not a profession or a religion, it is a hobby.
The second reason is the problem of impersonation and SPAM that's plaguing the feedback systems of today.
That said, patron feedback is important to any publication -- be it a blog or a newspaper, and some readers strongly feel that their opinions/contributions need to be published. I do get fair amount of feedback -- (there is a feedback button on every page on the left hand side), and I must acknowledge that many ideas and corrections are prompted by reader comments.
I do encourage our readers to write to me. How else would I know if the man fighting Bakasura is Bhima or Krishna?!
It is just that those messages are not automatically published like they used to be.
(Only lengthier articles are published in Kamat Umbrella)
I am considering writing a commenting system at this time. True to my established tradition, it won't be a Frankenstein solution, but a homegrown system.
The Feedback System!
