Default Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

I don't see how the comments of unknown posters, comments which may or may not be intelligent, are going to draw additional viewers. On the other hand, the existence of a dedicated commenting community assuredly leads to some marginal "buzz." I know that I have mentioned bhtv to anyone I thought might conceivably be interested. And I did link to bhtv on occasion in my limited travels on the Web.
I agree with all this, I'm just skeptical that anyone within TPTB is even reading it, let alone caring. They are set in their ideas of what matters. Sure, I see the comments section becoming more like that that follows online newpaper and magazine articles (this is not a positive), but it's not like that's going to hurt their business model and they never really figured out a way to make the forum help, even if Bob liked the idea of it in theory.
