I have decided to write this only because my earlier post regarding my speculation regarding the Daily Bell’s comments section is one of the highest read posts on this site. It is appropriate that I recognize publicly what appears to be an error in my thinking on this widely-read topic.
I have previously given my speculation about why the Daily Bell stopped taking comments several months ago. In summary it seemed a remarkable coincidence that the comments section was taken down shortly after one of countless rants by one specific troll – followed a few days later with an Anthony Wile editorial on topic regarding the subject of those same rants.
About two weeks ago the comments returned at the site. As always, I visit the site regularly, spending time on the articles I find of interest – this usually includes Anthony’s Saturday column and the Sunday interview, as well as any article about money, banking, etc. At the same time, I check on the comments, in order to see the flow of the dialogue.
It seems I was wrong about my speculation regarding why the comments section went away in the first place (while the reason why I stopped posting two months before that event continue. The reason behind both events is the same).
A perusal of the comments in this thread will explain this better than anything more I could say.
