My comment policy
Because of spam, I run pretty tight comment moderation.
If your comment is being held for moderation, you’ll see that posted. Typically moderated comments are approved in 24 hours or less.
If your comment gets deleted without posting it is possible you had a spam word or phrase in your post, like viagra or texas holdem. Those hit the trash without me ever seeing them. If you personally attack me, my family, or are just a jerk without good cause, you’ll find your post deleted pretty quickly as well. I figure you just needed to get it out of your system and never really wanted it posted for the world to see anyway.
Those of you who disagree with me or my views are more than welcome to comment. Sometimes I reply, sometimes I don’t. If you want a reply, be sure and say so. Some debates I will move to email. Typically this is because I find some discussions are better without an audience, where people can be less defensive.
Oh and sometimes I zap a moderated post by mistake while spam-scrubbing. If you think that happened, just repost.
Overall, I love for people to comment – no matter if you agree or not.
