I won't beg or blackmail for comments on fic, but it does bother me that so few people share their thoughts on stories. The ratio of feedback to reads, alerts, and favorites is rather appalling -- not in an objective sense, of course. There is a universe of reasons why people read without commenting; I know that. And I don't dwell on the fact that so many read with semi-invisibility. But if I'm being completely honest, and right now I am, it does sadden me.
