Comments are an important feature, because they allow your readers to respond to your content and interact with you. Your readers may provide their own thoughts or questions regarding the content of the post, but they may also provide links to other resources, generate discussion, or simply compliment you for a well-written post.
Comments can be controlled and regulated through the use of filters for language and content, and even queued for approval before they are visible on the web site. This is useful in dealing with comment spam.
