We do not pre-moderate any comments and welcome all kinds of thoughts, supportive, dissenting, critical or otherwise.We do not delete or censor comments unless they have content that:
- is abusive
- is off-topic
- contains ad-hominem attacks
- promotes hate of any kind
- uses excessively foul language
- is blatantly spam
All comments are filtered through spam filtering technology; the kind we uses varies over time, but we are currently using a combination of Akismet, Spam Karma 2, and Bad Behavior 2. The spam-filtering technology isn’t perfect, and from time to time it flags legitimate emails (false positives).
If you find that your comment isn’t immediately showing up, it may have been erroneously flagged as spam. Please email us at jeff [at] fam [dot] com to follow up on the status of your comment if it hasn’t shown up after 24 hours and we will do our best to sort it out.
