Hey all,

Thanks to everyone who answered my last question.  I can add all the
suggestions into a digest and post if required.
I do have one other question, however.

I am conducting a content analysis of weblogs.
I have scrapped all the comments into a database, sampled and am
currently conducing an inductive categorization approach.  HOWEVER, should I
be grouping the comments by weblog or does it matter?  It is pretty easy to
understand the comments in the first place, and I can check the original
post if needs be, but I want to ensure I am on terra firma.

Thanks y'all,
