I’ve noticed lately that folks are more than a little careless when entering their email addresses when leaving a comment on O’Flaherty.
This blog is set up to automatically send you notifications of any reply to your comment (using the subscribe to comments plugin) allowing you to respond to comments or questions that were directed towards you.
If your email address is not correct then you won’t receive these notifications and will be forced to have to regularly check the post in question in order to see who has replied to you.
A functional email address allows you to always be up to date and be a part of the conversation.
Remember that you can always unsubscribe from receiving email updates using the "manage subscriptions" link at the bottom of the post (must have an approved comment in order to do that).
Oh, a correct email address also stops my email client from filling up with "undelivered" messages when you have chosen to receive email updates. 😉
