In fact, Gruber's site is famous for not having comments. In an age when every website falls over itself to accommodate reader interactivity, Gruber stands alone. He has stubbornly resisted adding comments to his site for years."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1265225141.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p><a href="http://daringfireballwithcomments.net/" target="_blank">Daring Fireball With Comments</a> is live and you can toss a comment or two onto what Gruber has posted on his site. His reason for not allowing comments? In his words, it "takes away from what I'm saying." Yea so you can see why the word egotistical and arrogant are sometimes attached to his name. This should be an interesting experiment if nothing else. It appears that his isn't the only website that <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/02/were-turning-comments-off-for-a-bit/" target="_blank">isn't allowing comments</a> though.&nbsp;</p>

He's an egomaniacal self-important douche who often gets stuff wrong more than he gets it right, so it stands to reason that he wouldn't want his echo chamber violated.

Eff him. :mad:
