A successful use of the "comments" feature of blogs

Last Friday we posted the news of Anne Lipow's death on the Infopeople blog. We generally keep the comments feature for the blog turned off, because the blog is more informational than discussion, and it is reported that enabling comments on blogs leads to spam. I thought, however, that the comments feature would give folks who knew Anne a place to share remembrances with her family and friends. The family thought it was a good idea, and have linked to it from Anne's company website. As of this posting, it has been a great success, with wonderful comments from many people (and no spam!).
