I tried to let comments appear on this blog without moderation. Some people took advantage of it right from the get go, and I’ve left those comments intact as examples the absurdity of my early policy efforts. (Update: But I will be snipping them in the near future.) Today, even an extremely tolerant person’s threshold (mine) was crossed, and it was not a comment about me or this blog, if you’re wondering.
As a result of that one comment, all comments now require manual approval. I’m not sure if this is a temporary or permanent change of policy. We’ll see how things go.
UPDATE: I’ve gone through the comments on all of the threads and snipped portions I believed many people would find offensive. Please let me know if you find more.
