An Editorial Comment on Comments

I am seeing more frequent use of the he said/she said style of quotes in comments, e.g.,

A says: quote…

B says: response

I much prefer the style

quote

response

The latter puts the emphasis on the ideas, the former puts a lot of weight on the authorship. As the rules make clear, my belief is that Portland Transport will produce a better conversation if we minimize the impact of personalities and try to elevate ideas.
