Comment policy revisited
I'm not going to turn comment moderation on, though. For one thing, it's fairly uncommon for me to get truly obnoxious comments, and Blogger's Word Recognition has eliminated almost all comment spam, which, prior to my turning it on, had started to reach annoying levels. For another thing, although I realize that I occasionally post the quick plug for a carnival or answer a comment from work (although I try not to), it would definitely not be acceptable for me to be moderating comments from work, and that would mean an average of 10-13 hours a day during the week when comments wouldn't appear. It would totally destroy the exchange of ideas here by readers here for no good reason. In short, it would be too much work, too disruptive, and therefore not worth doing without a compelling reason.
Even though I have made up my mind not to use comment moderation (unless things change radically), I was wondering if any other bloggers who still use Blogspot had tried (or thought of trying it out) the comment moderation feature or what people think of moderated comments on blogs. Let me know.
