Despite the general understanding that internet comments are an existential exhaustion, I feel (for now?) vaguely excited for replies on Micro.blog. If you missed it earlier, Manton also put up a help page about it. My one caveat for those looking to turn this feature on: typically in real community design, moderation tools aren’t an after-thought or something to be provided later, but there aren’t any here. It’s all-or-nothing, and Micro.blog’s own sense of decorum is the only thing keeping replies on your blog from becoming problematic.

  1. You aren’t hallucinating. This post originally @-tagged Manton but seeing it on the blog I decided I still wasn’t ready for how that looks, so I undid it.
