In this list I've limited it to posts which were published in 2011. For much of the blog's history I didn't autoclose comments after 2 weeks, so the comparisons aren't appropriate. And comments tend to be less timeless in any case. Comments are a double-edged sword on a weblog, because they often invite the stupid to come out and play in people. But there are a non-trivial subset from whom I've learned a fair amount from. That learning doesn't always have to be a case where you even change your mind. Discussion in good faith can usually sharpen comprehension of your own perspective.
