Comments now on Patreon

Many of you have sent me notes asking what happened to the comments. Comments are permanently off on this blog. I just don't have the time to deal with it. In all honesty, since I have turned them off my daily routine has considerably improved, so they'll remain off. If you've witnessed the misery in my comment sections, you probably saw this coming.

This problem has been caused not so much by commenters themselves, as by Google's miserable commenting platform that doesn't allow blocking or managing problematic people in any way. It adds to this that the threaded comments are terrible to read and that you have to know to click on "LOAD MORE" after 200 comments to even read all replies is a remarkably shitty piece of coding.

I am genuinely sorry about this development because over the years I have come to value the feedback from many of you and I feel like I've lost some friends now. At some point I want to move this blog to a different platform and also write some other stuff again, rather than just posting transcripts. But at the moment I don't have the time.

Having said that, I will from now on cross-post transcripts of my videos at Patreon, where you can interact with me and other Patreons for as little as 2 Euro a month. Hope to see you there.
