All things me.

Yes, there are many reasons why a comment section might not be available. But with the exception of disabling comments due to harassment, most of them are not good reasons.

Allow me to be somewhat of a contrarian here. One perfectly good and valid reason would be that the author isn’t interested in receiving comments/feedback, and that is totally fine. People are free to express their opinions on their websites online, whether they want others to respond to those opinions or not.

Though to be clear I welcome replies to my posts via webmentions, but I don’t see it as a given that everyone should.
