Enough with Moderation!

I know, I know... moderation is a good thing.  For instance, eating in moderation means you will manage your weight and probably feel a lot better.

If you are going to drink alcohol, moderation means you won't have to deal with feeling bad the next morning, you won't make a fool of yourself, and your liver will be happy.

Even things that are good for you, such as exercise, are best done with some moderating limits.   I don't think I am in danger of surpassing those limits anytime soon but it is good to be aware of the risk anyway.

But, I'm tired of moderation.... comment moderation that is.  I've decided to take a risk and let you all put your comments directly on my posts without waiting for me to get back to approve them.  Sometimes it takes me all day to do that moderating stuff and in the meantime, no one else gets to read each other's comments.

I know, I'm wild and crazy.  Hopefully everyone will play nice so none of you will have to read mean or nasty comments.  If that happens, I may change my plan.

Previously, I went crazy and dropped the word verification requirement for comments.    I have had NO spam so that has worked out fine.   Hopefully this risk will work out just as well for me.

So here we go; Let the comments begin!

Good move! The only thing I have comment moderation on are older posts. Those get the most spam anyway for some reason.

Susan S said...

Thanks, Madeline. I'm not sure which blog was your's and your profile is hidden. Let me know if you have a public blog and I will stop by.

Janet, said...

Hi Susan. I think you will do fine, I've never moderated my comments on my blog.

I've set mine so that comments are moderated after about two weeks. That gives everyone enough time to chat about whatever's on the blog. I find the old comments get the spammy-trolly stuff more than the new stuff. Though I do get a troll every now and then. Just today I got one, in fact. BUT then again, I also get new NICE people like you. Thanks for stopping by my place.

PS It sure looks like you have a nice bunch of commenters. *waves* Hi, everyone! :)

*waves* Hi, everyone! :)

I just started reading your blog about a month ago! And I've enjoyed it very much! However, I rarely have the time to or energy these days to comment (with a newborn and 1 1/2 yrs old)... but today and your post inspired me to do just that!

Susan S said...

Thank you so much. With a newborn and a 1 1/2 yr old I don't know how you even have time to run to the potty! Thanks for reading my blog, though. I've been enjoying writing it and reading other blogs also. Who knew?
