Commenting period extended to 90 days

After finally having someone other than me post something here, it immediately occurred to me that perhaps the default comment period after a blog post (14 days) is too brief. After all, Council meetings only take place every two months or so, so if there is an issue under discussion here it doesn’t make sense to cut off the discussion after only two weeks.

So I’ve increased the comment period to 90 days. After 90 days comments on a particular blog post are automatically closed. This should be enough time to allow comments on an issue before and after a Council meeting, without the issue going stale. After 90 days, if necessary, someone can always make a new blog post on the issue, summarising and updating the issue to that point and refreshing the discussion.

Your thoughts?
