Why You Should Comment Instead of Replying to Email Feeds

If you subscribe to Atheist Revolution via email, you are in good company. Many readers sign up to receive updates via email. But there's a problem with receiving posts this way - when you reply to the emailed post, nobody gets to read your thoughts. Feedburner (the RSS-to-email service that makes email subscriptions possible) treats your replies as if they are replies to emails I sent just to you rather than the automated posts to the subscriber list that they are.

The good news is that it is easy to leave a comment on the blog that everyone will get to see. All you have to do is click on the title of the post you'd like to comment on within your email program, and you will be taken directly to that post on the blog.

Much of what you have to say is too good not to share with others, so I hope you'll consider joining the discussion!
