my apologies for not posting comments in reply. i suppose i should, considering the fact that i did add in the comment feature on my site.
i'm not totally sure why i don't reply. i suppose it's habit. usually when someone offers a comment, i just nod and say thank you--whether if it is an insult, compliment, or opinion.
i might have thoughts of my own, but more often than not from experience, i tend to offend the commentator. often, as a history student, there are moments where debates may rise over a certain issue. kashmir, for example. thus, i have chosen to remain silent to most commentary.
furthermore, i have discovered that it is in my silence where my image can remain at its most diplomatic front. i feel that i am at a strategic advantage to remain silent--to choose at which opportune moment to speak, that is.
perhaps, over time, it has been developed as a habit.
fortunately, in light of your comment, i will reply to the comments found here.
hurray and cheers.

One argument in favor of responding to comments is that it tends to increase readership and can tease out things that may interest you. The other is that it's civil to ackowledge people who take the time to type out a response.
Trolls and idiots, on the other hand, can't expect anyhting but deletions or mockery.
hmm...such things seem so obvious and yet, i never actually placed much thought into.
