You can Unlist stories (including comments) so that they don’t show up in your profile. (They also won’t show up in search results but that’s probably what you want anyway.) Apologies if you know about this already but in case you don’t: Go full-screen, click Publish, then Scheduling/audience/license, then Audience. I don’t bother for the most part but if you want to comment a lot without cluttering up your profile, that might be the way to do it.

Writer of (mainly short) fiction, criticism/discussion and other stuff; I discovered in my late 50s that I’m aphantasic
