Thank you for your interest in commenting on our book! We are excited to have made it possible for you, our readers, to submit comments at the level of detail of every single paragraph and code example. Please feel welcome to make liberal use of the commenting system; we want to produce the best book we can. (Yes, your use of the comment system is subject to our User Agreement; see the section called “User Agreement” for details.)
At the end of each list of comments sits a small form where you can enter comments of your own. We ask for just one piece of information in addition to your comment, which is your name. You're also welcome to provide a URL for your home page, blog, or what have you.
We'd love to credit people who give particularly good feedback, and to do that, we need to know who to thank. You don't have to give us your real name, but if you don't, we can't credit you, no matter how helpful you may be.
After we've read a comment, we may mark it as “reviewed”; when we do this, you'll see a note next to a comment's title. Due to the huge volume of comments, we may not have time to mark all of them as reviewed.
When we do mark a comment as reviewed, it indicates that we've read and acted upon the comment, but that we haven't published an update yet. When a comment no longer applies to a particular paragraph, we'll hide it from view.
Our comment system isn't just a dead dump for snippets of text; it's a conversation between us and you. You'll notice that you can subscribe to an Atom feed for each web page, letting you see the latest comments, and there's also a feed for the book as a whole. Each comment published through the feed comes with a link that lets you see that comment in context, and respond to it.
