Netiquette with reference to blogging

I don’t make new year’s resolutions but I have made a decision which I’ll try to stick to. With a couple of exceptions, I will no longer make any comments on blogs where the writer never replies. It makes me feel: ignored; that I may have said something stupid; that the blogger has taken a dislike to me for some reason (fair enough).

It seems to me good manners to reply to comments, in the same way that you would reply to a letter or an email someone sent you. What does the team think?

It is polite to reply to comments on your blog
