Who With The What Now?

So I was meaning to post yesterday on a different matter, but first I had to look-up “object permanence” to make sure that it meant what I thought it did, and as these things go, many hours later I decided that it was time for bed.

Anyway, I don’t know if folks read the comments that others leave here. In particular, I imagine that new comments on older posts would go largely unnoticed. (I’ve actually played that assumption to add “secret” footnotes on an occasion or two.) New comments are actually emailed to me so that I don’t have to go looking for them. I do not, however, check my email anywhere near as often as I used to, and even when I do, I increasingly will only read a few that are of immediate interest/relevance and leave the rest. All that is merely to say that last night, I had several new comments to read. Adding those with a half a dozen or so others I’ve gotten in the last month or two and…

I’ve been thinking of how to say this in the least rude and belligerent-sounding way possible, because I really do appreciate feedback, but people, your comments confuse me. Whether it’s because I don’t see the relevance to the post on which they occur, or that they contain such a leap in logic or perspective from what I wrote that I don’t know how to respond. Sometimes I’m just left scratching my head wondering, “Do I even know you?” Not that that is a requirement, but it is nice to know who people are.

I admit that I’ve been out of it for awhile, so maybe the problem is me. Or maybe it is merely payback for years of people wondering what the heck I was talking about.
