Debating Our Responsibility to Explain Impact of Ending Reader Comments

August 21, 2020

To the Editor:

To answer Josh Kim's question: "Does IHE Have a Responsibility to Share the Effects of Eliminating Reader Comments?"

No, IHE does not have such a responsibility. You can do as you wish, and you don't owe me a thing.

I will say, though, that IHE's value (to me, at least) has been diminished by eliminating reader comments. Those comments often were thoughtful, illuminating, and/or amusing. IHE is still the first thing I read every weekday morning.  Too bad it's not as enjoyable as it used to be.
