Do All Things Without Moderation

As some of you have already noticed, I have turned comment moderation back off. The Internet terrorist who has been posring spam comments seems to want to force bloggers he disagrees with to moderate comments, presumably to hinder free discussion (with which comment moderation interferes). And giving in to what bullies want just encourages them to continue their behavior.

So comment moderation is off, and hopefully no one will find the occasional easily-recognizable spam message (which will always be deleted quickly from the blog anyy, so please don’t respond to them) too much of a nuisance. It is a small price to pay for being able to discuss things and express ourselves freely.

Thanks!

    "Internet terrorist who has been posring spam comments seems to want to force bloggers he disagrees with to moderate comments, presumably to hinder free discussion (with which comment moderation interferes). And giving in to what bullies want just encourages them to continue their behavior."That's my attitude as well. If what's-his-name (as one of my commenters noted, a person who's 2 letter nom de web is something of an onomatopeia) wants me to impose moderation, that's the last thing I'm going to do. Ultimately, the short time his gibberish is around is something less than an inconvenience.
