Why do women comment less than men on blogs?

I’m not saying that men comment a lot. Obviously, looking at the comment to views ratio on blogs, it is obvious that most readers have something against commenting. However, out of the very few who do comment, why do they mostly consist of men?

Going by the fact that women tend to talk a lot more than men, it is surprising to see women not raising an opinion in the comments section. Maybe they like to keep their opinions among women only, not wanting “strange” men to read their thoughts.

Women are generally more polite and sometimes don’t comment to avoid getting into an argument whereas some men comment aimlessly and senselessly. However, it does little to the fact that women are miserly when it comes to commenting.

It will be interesting to see who comments more to this post. Maybe women will prove me wrong after all!
