Comments, comments

Recently, I've gotten some comments that are less than stellar. These have mostly been on old blog posts and I found out I can moderate posts older than 14 days. This seemed a reasonable compromise to me, as I really don't want to moderate. I spend too many hours away from the computer and wouldn't be able to moderate in a timely fashion.

Just today I got a post on a recent blog entry that seems a little racy. I can't guarantee that the link that was posted is to a porn site, but it sure sounds that way and I'm not going to test it.

So what to do? Do I turn on moderation and only allow legitimate posts? Or do I just accept this as part of the cost? It actually shows that my blog is hitting higher on some search engine somewhere, so I guess that's a good thing.

(Note, I posted this entry twice. In the process of some other clean up, I deleted the first entry).

A bit over a year ago I got my first nasty comment, and from then on I have moderated comments. It's rare when I don't let one in. However, this past week I have gotten numerous comments on old posts, and they all have links to advertisements of some sort, some of which look to be possible porn. For that reason I am glad I moderate. I recommend doing so.

I also moderate and wouldn't want it any other way.
