I usually do not make decisions lightly; and I did reflect for a long time on whether to discontinue "Taking Note" before I posted my last post. I have an even harder time reversing decisions after I have made them. But, given the significant and thoroughly positive response I received during the last two days in the comment section of this blog, in some forums, and by private communication, I will give the matter some more thought. These reactions certainly outweigh the rude insults made by one pseudonymous individual. I will let you know whether I will continue within the next two weeks.
If I continue, I will either disable comments altogether, or, more likely, turn on verification.
Thank you very much for all the support.
