A Word About Comments Here At The BlogHerald
Just a quick word about comments. We like comments. We welcome all kinds of opinions and thought. But we get a lot of comment spam, here at the BlogHerald. We’ve got Akismet and Spam Karma 2 working over time to catch spam, but sometimes it gets a little overzealous and catches stuff it shouldn’t. We don’t, as a rule, delete anything except if it is spam, or unless it is clearly offensive and inappropriate, such as material that is abusive, is off topic, promotes hate of any kind or uses excessively foul language.
Otherwise, we let people say what they want to say.
I felt it was necessary to draw up a few thoughts on the issue, particularly because we *do* delete stuff on occasion and I wanted you all to know under what conditions we actually do it.
If you feel like your comments are not showing up, it may because it has been erroneously flagged as spam, or is held in moderation; please email us at e[email protected] and we’ll do our best to sort it out.
For the “official” comments policy, head over here.
