RE: Blogs and commentary
Yes people should be able to comment, but at the same time people often forget that the person they are talking to has feelings. Every blogger should be prepared for mean comments but they should also be prepared to know when to put their foot down. There is constructive criticism which is always a good thing and then there are plain ol' trolls which no one should have to put up with. Ultimately a blog is a personal site and if the person doesn't want to deal with people insulting them (some comments border on harassment - to say you don't agree with the person's opinion is one thing but to say they deserve to die or unleash a string of curses or threats is another thing and those comments do happen, I've seen them) or posting off topic junk (spam comments are the worst - who wants an advertisement for shag rugs all up in their blog) it is really their call.
But they should say in advance what their policy is. I like how Tommy at Jak and Jil made a post flat out saying his policy on comments. That way there is no confusion.
