Lately, I've been getting hostile comments posted to old posts, dating from June or earlier. Some appear to be outright trolls, and others are just hostile. I rather suspect that such commenters are trying to have the "last word" on various topics about which they disagree with me strenuously, particularly mercury and autism. Given that few people will be likely to be reading these posts or these comments in the future (blogs being a very "in the now" sort of medium, with few people reading posts more than a few weeks old), it hardly seems worth my time to answer them. On the other hand, I don't necessarily want to let obvious trolls have the last word. Consequently, I'm going to begin closing posts older than two months to any new comments. It will take a while to work my way through old posts.
