Commenting on any post I’ve loaded to Zelo Street is still freely allowed: there is no check or moderation in place. That brings benefits for both administrator and commenter, so comments appear as they are made, and there is no need for me to spend additional time on them.
Sadly, there has been occasional posting of abusive comments. It’s not about disagreement: that’s part of any debate. Posting comments that go beyond disagreement are what is not acceptable, not merely to me, but to anyone looking in as well.
For now, the open comments policy will continue. I don’t want to introduce moderation, but with more visits being made to the blog, and comment numbers rising accordingly, that appears an inevitability.But comment is still free right now.
