Site Issues: Comment Moderation

Effective immediately, all comments will be subject to moderation by your Primary Editorial Voice(tm). They will not be posted until they are specifically approved.

No, it’s nothing you said.

You can blame “Vince”, or “Julie”, or whatever name our resident comment spammer has been going by this week. He/she/they/it have/has been leaving roughly a half-dozen to a dozen comment spams each morning, pushing some sort of scam linked in the signature file of the messages.

And it’s now added “spam cleanup” to our duties here at your Mighty Blog of Fun(tm), which doesn’t make it much fun.

Now, we realize that in general, talking to comment spammers is about as effective as addressing drywall directly.

But some of “Vince”‘s attempts at spamming contain references to the topic at hand, and possible knowledge of the world of Ohio broadcasting. (His cross-dressing side, “Julie”, hasn’t displayed that knowledge yet.)

So, maybe he’s here reading, preparing to post a link to his latest scam on one of our comments.

Don’t bother, “Vince”.

With comment moderation, your Primary Editorial Voice(tm) will be the only one who reads your attempts…which will hit the bit bucket as soon as we click “Delete”, and will not be seen by anyone else in the interim.

And no, we’re not interested in your spam blogs. Even if you wear a pretty dress and call yourself “Julie”.

As far as actual, real comments are concerned…we will do our best to post them without interference, as quickly as we are able to do so.

And we don’t expect the full moderation to last all that long…
