Okay… Apparently I’m an Idiot!


I’m stupid.

I’ve been maintaining this blog on and off for awhile now. And one of the things that always confused me is why no one ever comments on what I write or the software I release. I mean… I think I do a pretty good job here (when I’m actually paying attention to it).

So the no comments thing has kind of ticked me off at times. I know I have readers. I know I give value. WTH?

…Now, for the idiot part…

Today I got an email from a new reader thanking me for the free stuff and sneaky tricks. She says she tried to post a comment… but couldn’t see how to do it.


You have GOT to be kidding me! I’ve had comments disabled the entire time. Holy smokes… you’d think I was a noob, or something. I’m genuinely embarrassed.

Whatever. I think I’ve got it all figured out now. I’m doing this over an excruciatingly slow internet connection from a hotel lobby near my cabin in Payson, AZ, though, so I can’t hang around long enough to verify it actually works. I’ve been out-of-touch for 4 days already and won’t be back in Phoenix with a big, bad high-speed connection for a few days still. I’ll make sure I’ve got it all set up right then.

In the meantime, you can finally leave comments! Woohoo! I know that’s the news you’ve been dying to hear all year.

If you’re reading this then LEAVE A COMMENT! Seriously. I’ve been missing the love for almost a year now… I’ve gotta make up for lost time! Don’t make me beg…

    Hi Matt,

    Here’s a comment for you … “comment”.

    Forgot how I recently found your site, I was a little reluctant to add your blog to my reader as it appeared you didn’t update frequently, but now that you seem to be posting more often I am glad that I did.

    Hi Matt–
    I bought SSP, and find it very useful. Plus your free tools are wonderful as well. One other thing that impressed me: You took TWO MONTHS vacation! Must be nice. I can’t imagine what that would be like.

    Keep it up. You are doing a great job. You are an inspiration.

    Wonderful, Matt. I thought that you’re some kind of an arrogant person and do not care what everyone else thinks.)

    Also, i wanted to bring to your attention that in Laser URL it doesn’t return any results from quantcast – either it’s because they changed the site a bit or anything else – i don’t know, but it doesn’t.

    Hey Sandro1985,

    Make sure you download the latest Laser URL version because there was a big update a couple of weeks back that too care of this issue (and others).


    Thanks for all the great tools and feedback on Ad Grenade Matt! I look forward to working with you in the very near future. Can’t wait till these new ideas become a reality!

    Always wanted to comment on your blog. I think i speak for most people when I say we appreciate all of the free software you provide to us. Your software is always useful and your skill in laying everything out including the design make them a pleasure to use. Also glad to see your back posting to your blog. This is on my favorites list.
