Comment icons

OK, dilemma here. Does the pointy part of a comment bubble icon face left or right? Consider:

comments_left

versus:

comments_right

so, which one says “Comments” more directly?

To clarify, here’s the one in the WordPress admin (I designed it):

wordpress_icon

And here’s the one on digg.com:

digg_icon

I kinda wish now that I had made the point face left, like in digg.com, but maybe not…

  1. I vote for left… it doesn’t force your eye to go backwards. Wait, is this is trick question?
