I have unlocked moderation on comments (I think), partly because of theparasiteguy’s post about moderated comments, but mostly because I have more faith in the spam filter.
I have a number of different wordpress powered websites, some active, other not, but the spam filter on the .org version of WP is quite useless. Without moderation, your blog becomes a link-builder’s dream home. But, after realising that wp.com has a spam filter that appears to let all the good stuff in, and the bad stuff out, I’m opening the flood gates.
…Bring on the trolling :P.
Do most of you guys still moderate new comments? Why or why not?
As always, thanks for reading.
