Comment Moderation

Just a note that Blogger now has comment moderation enabled. I have turned it on. This means that I will have to manually approve every comment before it appears. I check my e-mail frequently (I will receive automatic messages when a comment is left) and I promise that except for rare occasions I will approve or reject a post fairly quickly.

When will I reject a post? Only if the post contains comment spam or has hate speech in it. That is all. Feel free to call me stupid or ridicule my viewpoint. I have a thick skin. But I have no tolerance for spammers or those who post incendiary material just for the sake of conflict.

UPDATE on 11 November 2005

As I now have two levels of spam protection, word verification and comment moderation, I am going to open up comments to anonymous posters. I see no harm in this now as anonymous posters will not be able to successfully abuse the comments.
