Have been glancing/skimming over the meta I'm seeing in regards to AO3 and comments, and comments in general. First off, I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees lots of hits but zero comments -- I have a total of one comment there on all the fic I've posted. It's odd how different web spaces have such different culture, isn't it? Second, to repeat something I've said in the past, I love comments and I am not at all insulted by a 'loved the story' type comment. I've never understood why there's the perception that if you leave a comment it has to be some deep multi-paragraph treatise. It doesn't -- or at least as far as I'm concerned. I'm touched that anything I write engenders a comment of any length whatsoever, and I appreciate people taking the time to comment. And it's sure better than the alternative, when you think not a soul is reading. I am writer, see me angst [g] So yes, minimalist commenters are treasured here, trust me on that!
