I trust youMay 18th, 2009
Until this week, all blog comments had to be approved by me before showing up on WDJK. Many bloggers set it up this way for two reasons:
- To keep any spam from being posted up. Every so often, one sneaks through.
- To make sure no one crosses the line and says something offensive.
The downside to this is that there’s often a delay between when you send your comment and when it actually gets posted up, depending on what I’m doing at the time. I have a Blackberry with me all the time, so these delays usually aren’t very long. But still, I’m sure you would rather see your comment post up right away.
So, I changed the settings over the weekend. If it’s your first time posting a comment, I still need to approve it before it shows up. However, any comments by you after that will automatically be posted up. I’ll be sent a copy of your comment after the fact, with the option to delete it, spam it, etc.
I let you speak your mind freely here, and I’m sure you’ve all been enjoying the lively discussions. People reading this blog are intelligent, passionate whisky enthusiasts. Let’s keep it going–the right way.
And if you’re just lurking and haven’t contributed anything (my blog stats tell me that there are thousands of you doing this every day), please feel free to join in on the discussions. There are no wrong answers here.
