As an "opinion piece", an article by Mr. Strenger gets no priority from Haaretz on publishing the comments by readers, and most of the comments are thrown away, along with most of all comments. The result is very little feedback, and Mr. Strenger remains in the dark of night regarding his influence on readers' thoughts. A comparison with the number of published comments on Mr. Burston's articles may be "illuminating". There are many more responses to Burston than to Strenger. Why is that? Is the Burston style so much better? The obvious answer is that the number of comments has little to do with quality. Mr. Burston is right there in the Haaretz building, and the moderators respond to his needs. If they don't, he does it himself. And this is the way you should act, Mr. Strenger. Better tell Haaretz that there will be no new article before the old one gets its full set of comments. You will be happier, and your style will improve too.
