THEORY ONE: Why commentators do not comment:
If you listen on an i-pod while doing other things…… you mean to comment but do not get on the computer till a later time and by that time you have forgotten what your WITTY, INSIGHTFUL COMMENT WAS … so you skip commenting altogether.
You are driving in your car listening …carrying on a conversation with the podcast. When it comes time you can comment you have had your say, won the argument and are willing to leave bygones be bygones and go on to something else.
If YOU are listening on your computer while you quilt… the quilt takes a turn for the worst when you are listening to the podcast and requires your full attention.
You are listening to the podcast in the darkness of the night (Isn’t insomnia a wonderful thing!) and after you comment you read what you wrote and it makes no sense so you erase it and go back to sleep.
A new podcast is released so you think you have lost the moment and decide you will post on the new podcast instead. Then you do not get around to it for all the above reasons…. and it all starts over again.
THAT IS OKAY WE UNDERSTAND….
