I vote for replying to all comments anon. It's great to acknowledge that a reader has taken time to comment - so few do - and a simple "Thanks!" is usually all that's needed.

If someone leaves a detailed comment, then it's good to also leave a detailed response.

I've written fanfic for a couple of decades now, and I'd never heard of anyone complaining about comment inflation until recently. I think it's a ridiculous notion to make a writer feel badly for attempting to foster a relationship in fandom - isn't that what fandom's for?

I hope you post your fics, anon!

Agreed on all accounts.

A great thing about fandom is interaction and community, and part of that involves acknowledging other people. If someone takes the time to comment, the least you can do is say thank you. It's also a good way to encourage people to keep or start commenting, which I wish more people did.
