As somone who reads a lot of blogs, I really don't like the following suggestions from the article:

Having to be a member of the site to leave a comment.

Comments being closed
It's disappointing to read a great post right to the end and then find out you can no longer contribute to the conversation. We aren't all spammers ya know.
So read the article and come back with your comments on the ideas suggested.
Comments are now an old fashioned back linking technique. We should try to use such technique which are according to the latest trends, because trends are changing continuously and it is better to follow these to survive.
