Comment Moderation.

Today, I received my first-ever unpleasant comment, and after deleting it, decided to change to comment moderation. I had hoped to avoid this, but human nature being what it is, and blogging being relatively anonymous, it appears that the urge to respond in a less-than-loving way overcomes the odd individual. So it goes.

I hope this won't be so unwieldy that you will stop leaving comments - I appreciate reading them.


  1. Same thing happened to me. I reflected and decided it's my blog, so I don't have to accept unacceptable behavior on it.

  2. I use comment moderation for the odd bit of nastiness as well as anonymous spamming. Don't let it discourage you.

  3. It is necessary. I'll still be reading and commenting. Take care.

  4. Good for you for taking care of yourself, your blog, and your readers! Reading ugly comments changes the atmosphere of a blog meant for growth, support, and recovery.
