LJ Commenting

I got curious about how the commenting features on LJ were used, so I have a poll for you guys.

[edit: Sorry, in the question where I ask "why not" for the comment notifications, instead of "one of the last two options" I meant to say "anything other than the first option". Sorry about that.]

Poll #954897 LJ Commenting

Who do you allow comments from?

Everybody
143(70.8%)
Only my friends
57(28.2%)
Nobody
2(1.0%)

Do you have commenting enabled on your journal?

Yes, for all my posts
139(65.9%)
Yes, as a default, but turned off for certain posts
67(31.8%)
Not as a default, but only for selected posts for which I want to receive comments
3(1.4%)
No, not at all
2(0.9%)

If you chose one of the last two options, why not?

I'm just not comfortable with the idea that people can comment on my journal.
2(20.0%)
I don't use my journal in a manner that commenting as a feature would apply to.
1(10.0%)
I feel that commenting is for people who need ego boosts, and I'm doing fine, thank you.

I'd rather not explain, thanks.

14(6.8%)

If you chose one of the last two options, why not?

Some of my posts are very popular in LJ and I don't have the time to read through any more comments on them, although I think the ability to comment is still important.
0(0.0%)
My email already gets too many messages, and I'm trying to cut down.
6(33.3%)
I read my notifications through the Message Center instead.
1(5.6%)
I'd rather not explain, thanks.
