I’ve gone back and forth on this a few times over the last couple of months, but I’m going to leave them enabled for at least a month to see how it goes.
If I’m getting valuable comments I’ll probably keep them. If there aren’t any, or they’re just flamewars in my older posts, I may remove them again.
They don’t seem to affect the loading time of the page though. Not for the user, anyway, so that’s a plus.
I’ve got a number of posts in the recent past that I’d love to get feedback on, so go at it.
