Marie over at <http://hoosierdemocrats.blogspot.com/> is upset because I enabled "Comment Moderation" on my blog a couple of weeks ago to prevent spam and to make sure that I knew when someone posted a comment on my blog. She thinks I am not respecting poeple's freedom of speech.
As you all know I always publish your posts as soon as I read my email. Marie did not even try to submit a post, I think maybe she did not know how "Comment Moderation" works.
Marie has an interesting point of view that I should not allow comment moderation on my blog.
I have never refused anyone the right to post a comment on my blog. Not once!
I enabled comment moderation to prevent spam and profanity a couple of weeks ago.
All you have to do to put a comment on my blog is go and post it. I will publish it! I always do and I always have. I like it when people disagree. I enabled comment moderation for 2 reasons:
1. To prevent spam.
2. So that I would know when someone posted a comment on my blog, that way I can respond to them.
I had a complaint not too long ago from someone that I never responded to one of his comments. With comment moderation enabled I always know when there is a new post.
I fully expect people to disagree with some of my views and I have always encouraged people to post comments that are not in line with mine. A simple review of the past comments posted on my blog will show that to ANYONE...
Heck, at one time I asked Republicans to come on over and post comments on my blog and I asked them to disagree with me about the Contract with America.
Marie PLEASE come on over and post your dissenting opinion, that is what America is all about...
Rest assured that I will happily post any comments you wish on my blog!
I am curious as to what you all think. Would you rather I disabled comment moderation and went back to the way it was a couple of weeks ago?
I really do not care either way.
I enabled "Comment Moderation" to ensure that I did not miss people's posted comments due to a reader complaint.
Please let me know if you prefer the blog with or without "Comment Moderation."
