Wow, Tish. That's a huge ratio. Mine's about 2 comments per post.

Posted by: Les Jones at October 04, 2007

219 posts, 85 comments. Looks like I'm the only one so far this way...

There are currently 12,872 posts and 44,306 comments

But I lost several thousand in various upgrades and such.

You guys have very impressive numbers!

For me: 339 posts, 233 comments

I can't figure out if what I have to say is that uninteresting or if I'm so dead on right that no one wants to argue with me.

578 posts and 949 comments, if you count comments from the original blogspot.com blog.

Do millions upon millions of spam comments count positively or negatively?

I'm going to feature this post in my upcoming Sunday Samplings link love post. I'd love to send more people over to answer this question. It's really interesting to see the ratios!

I'm not sure where to find this data (I'm running on a remotely administered Moveable Type host) but I've almost never had a conversation in my comments. Right now most of my traffic is people searching for green tomato recipes; they never even look at the main page.

138 posts vs. 33 comments... it's getting better than it used to be, and not all of them are from family members who find me and have to say Hi!

Posted by: Missyb64 at October 07, 2007

2,766 posts, and 5,046 comments, though some were lost when I changed over to my current comment provider.

Half were probably mine, most likely cursing a commentor or their opinion....

According to Blogger, I've made 2,032 posts since January 2003 and according to Haloscan, I have accumulated 5,894 comments. This doesn't count comments entered directly into Blogger, but usually I copy them into Haloscan anyway so it should more or less match up.

Neat topic here! (I found this one thanks to Tish's Sunday Sampler btw)

187 posts, 237 comments so far. That's a little under 1.5 per post. Bleh. Though it has been growing of late.
