For this blog, comments don’t seem functional. I don’t have time to monitor them. Comments on a certain topic might distract from the overall proposition (to boycott Holland and direct your financial flow elsewhere).
For example, a fan of Darth Vader might object to the association with Robbert Dijkgraaf, and then IAS members might object that they haven’t developed into the Evil Empire just yet. Plenty scope for comments, but distractive.
Yet it seems that 100 persons have seen this blog now and it might be nice to open a page with room for comments. I am particularly interested in suggestions for elaboration or new entries: where the proposition would not be convincing up to now. You might have plans to visit Holland for the holidays next Summer and this blog hasn’t yet deterred you yet: then indicate what would help to clinch the argument.
