Future Now: What makes you comment? (on a blog)

Fascinating post over on the grokdotcom blog: What Makes You Comment? The comments, naturally, are the fascinating part.  Quite interesting to see the varied reaction from folks there.

As I said in my own comment there, I generally do leave comments on a blog when I find an article interesting, provided that:

  • I have the time to write a comment
  • I have something to say beyond simply "Great article"
  • I can just easily post the comment without any kind of complex registration process

Do you leave comments on blogs?  Why or why not?  The Future Now folks would like your opinions...   (of course, they are required in a comment, so if you are someone who just doesn't leave comments, well... :-)
