New Moderated Comments Policy

by Michael Dorf

The comment spam is getting out of hand. Finding no magic words to make it go away, I'm adopting a new policy of moderating comments posted two days or longer after a post first goes up. You'll still be able to comment on new posts without moderation and for later comments I'll do my best to sort genuine comments from advertisements for gold, handbags, witch doctors, and so forth, but I may not always succeed. Thus, if you (and by you, I mean a reader interested in commenting on the post or responding to another comment on the post, rather than a spammer) find that a comment you attempted to post isn't going up, please email me offlist and I'll do my best to rectify it.
