When you comment on my post, whether you agree or disagree with me, I appreciate it. A couple exceptions: off topic spam, and trying to manipulate the audience to leave without engaging the ideas.
I read every comment, and come back and re-read them again. Sometimes I learn something from a comment I didn't notice the first time I read it, and give it a "late" upvote. I enjoy the back and forth between commenters who disagree. Sometimes I will upvote them both, every comment right down the page, because their dialogue is good learning material.
Yeah, so I do appreciate the engagement I get here. You help me to polish my own ideas to better reflect the truth. I hope you feel the same for me, especially when we disagree.
