Blogs are about two-way flows. The Guardian doesn't understand this

Oh my good god. My colleague BadgerGravling, pointed me at this from the Guardian Blogs.
Wouldn't have been so bad if they'd been transparent from the off.
What makes it so godawful is the fact that the moderators closed the comments before anyone from the Guardian responded.
Note to Guardian - blogs are about two-way flows of conversation. Thanks for the broadcast.

The rate of change is so rapid it's difficult for one person to keep up to speed. Let's pool our thoughts, share our reactions and, who knows, even reach some shared conclusions worth arriving at?
