Comment Etiquette?

Alright we all know that I'm a total comment whore and love to come to my blog and check out the funny stuff my readers (I think I'm up to 10 double digits baby!) have to say. I also have to confess that the inspiration from this post came from none other than the fabulous Danielle so I can't take any credit for it. Lately I've been commenting all over the place. I think part of the reason is because I figure if I comment on people's blog people will comment on mine. I think Homer would call this the Fisher/Self Hater. I love to see the comments since you guys are hilarious but I usually don't respond to the comments unless I'm asked a question. Is this poor blog comment etiquette? Am I offending my readership? Please dear bloggers and friends, enlighten me about my dilemma about the correct etiquette. Do you expect responds to my comments? Thank you in advance for the windfall of comments this Fisher/self hater post is sure to bring me!

I don't know think its rude. I don't usually check to see if someone has responded to my comment anyway. I only respond if I'm particularly moved to do so.

Well I'm glad you all don't think it's rude when I don't respond but I will respond to this one anyway.

Katz - glad to have you aboard

Moral - glad to see that I've managed to move you

I vote for "not rude."

You should only be responding to blog comments when asked a question, or when it's so fuckin' toasty out there's no sense in even moving until the sun sets and the heat breaks. (Is this what living in Orlando's like, FR?)

If I have the option, I always choose to comment anonymously. Is this bad etiquette, if you have nothing to hide?

ps. I like your blog a lot. You are funny, but not in a hurtful or immature way. Takes a common touch

I, too, vote for "not rude". I don't expect people to respond to my comments, but oddly enough, I feel guilty when I don't comment back to comments left on my blog. I think I'll start blog therapy site to explore this issue and others that arise from blogging.

Yes, not commenting makes you a horrible horrible man!!! Nah I'm just kidding, you should only respond if someone wrote something worth responding to.

You all are great, I think it's funny that everyone says it's not rude to comment back yet I find myself responding to your comments.

Anonymous - that's what Orlando feels like until about late July then in August it's so nasty and hot out that we just sit inside and watch the tourists try to cope with it while trying to figure out which one of the 19 (slight exagerration but only slight) Disney exit they should get off from.

Janel - I feel your pain bud. But like everyone here says no need to feel guilty, unless you aren't responding to my comments.

Angel - duly noted I will only respond when moved to like Moral said.

D - I totally feel ya about some of the rude comments people leave. I've been lucky enough to only get funny or nice comments but I've seen some nasty ones. I think people who post anonymously and don't leave some kind of clue as to who they are suck ass and need to get a freakin life!
