Robert Scoble has changed his comment policy and will no longer permit non-family friendly comments on his blog.

It was about a year ago that a friend of mine became the subject of a comment war on Scoble’s blog because someone who was apparantly an ex-employee of his started posted negative comments after my buddy had posted a comment on Scoble’s blog. My friend contacted Scoble who refused to remove the comments, citing his comment policy at the time.

I welcome the change – but wish it had happened a year ago. I encourage bloggers to have an atmosphere that invites debate, yet keeps things at least somewhat civil.
