I have moved to comment moderation on this blog starting now. Last week, I mentioned that I was starting authentication, using TypeKey, but I decided that requires too many steps from readers. I don't want to dissuade commenters. Therefore, to combat spam, I am now moderating comments.
I will delete comments that are spam or clearly have nothing to do with the discussion at hand. I won't delete comments that disagree with me, but please use appropriate language. I don't like lots of profanity and nastiness.
I will do my best to approve comments quickly. With time differences, however, please be aware that some of you might see a significant delay if you post something during my night!
Please do let me know what you think about this. I really didn't want to have to do this, but sadly, it is pretty much a necessity these days.
