Bill Gates Has Left the Building

By Deane Barker on April 28, 2004

For the first time ever in the two years I’ve been blogging, I have closed the comments on an entry. I always thought I could never get enough comments, but the things happening on the semi-legendary Bill Gates entry need to stop. Comments are split between very sad stories, and people making fun of those sad stories.

While I was at it, I closed the comments on the Bush and Clinton entries as well. People thought they were talking to Bush (a title of “Emailing the President” probably didn’t help), and the Clinton thing is straying too far into politics (admittedly, my own comments aggravated this).

I had to dig out the manuals to find the right tag to close them, because I removed that tag from my template long ago, thinking I’d never want to close the comments on anything.



  1. Because that only works if you have the right tags in the template. I re-wrote the templates from scratch, and didn’t include the IfAllowComments tag. I had to go put them back in.

Comments are closed. If you have something you really want to say, tweet @gadgetopia.
