Thus much I thought proper to tell you in relation to yourself, and to the trust I reposed in you. However, many of the most learned and wise adhere to the new scheme of expressing themselves by things; which has only this inconvenience attending it, that if a man’s business be very great, and of various kinds, he must be obliged, in proportion, to carry a greater bundle of things upon his back, unless he can afford one or two strong servants to attend him. I have often beheld two of those sages almost sinking under the weight of their packs, like pedlars among us, who, when they met in the street, would lay down their loads, open their sacks, and hold conversation for an hour together; then put up their implements, help each other to resume their burdens, and take their leave. The number of people increased, and, in less than half all hour, the island was moved and raised in such a manner, that the lowest gallery appeared in a parallel of less then a hundred yards distance from the height where I stood.


I then put myself in the most supplicating posture, and spoke in the humblest accent, but received no answer. Those who stood nearest over against me, seemed to be persons of distinction, as I supposed by their habit. They conferred earnestly with each other, looking often upon me. At length one of them called out in a clear, polite, smooth dialect, not unlike in sound to the Italian: and therefore I returned an answer in that language, hoping at least that the cadence might be more agreeable to his ears. Although neither of us understood the other, yet my meaning was easily known, for the people saw the distress I was in.

    First of all, let’s discuss a social proof aspect of commenting. It is just like how you see a ridiculously long line at the store. Does it attract your attention? Surely!

    Having seen a thread with large number of responses, I usually read them all, “cos it seems to be something good”. That’s the same with blogs commenting.

      One more important thing is about bloggers. Reading through the post comments is the easiest way for him to understand what people need to know, what are they curious about.

        This can even encourage the reader to leave his own opinion about certain topic, thus adding value of the whole post. Surely, such a result benefits everybody, even including those who are just reading and sit quiet on the sidelines.

          That helps the author to figure out what other topics to write about and possibly what other products to create.
