Why are comments closed?

After eight years of blogging, I've finally discontinued Skeptic's Play.  I moved to another blog, A Trivial Knot.  I no longer want to waste time moderating the comments on this blog, so comments are closed.

Dear adversary, I understand your predicament.  If comments are closed, how will you tell me that I'm full of shit?

I will simply say that as a prolific writer, I have learned to make peace with the knowledge that I've said some pretty stupid stuff over the years.  Perhaps you can make peace with it as well.

Alternatively, I have an open thread on my new blog specifically for this purpose.
