On Comment Moderation

Ah, it’s that time of year again. Numerous people who’ve been commenting for ages find themselves in moderation purgatory and, understandably, wonder “WTF?”

The explanation is simple. Akismet does this when we roll over into a new kennel since it needs to “re-learn” a bit. It usually don’t take long and none of your comments will ever disappear, it’s just that us Mgmt types will have to be a little more diligent on the “Approve” button for a few weeks.

Is it worth it? Oh yes. You would not believe the amounts of crap that Akismet keeps out that we would otherwise have to shovel out of the comments on an hourly basis to keep them readable, so bear with the inconvenience a bit. It’ll soon pass.

What does the wikileaks Task Force have to do with comment moderation?

Y’all ought to put a “Why Was I Moderated?” button up on the menu bar, in case anyone has questions – Oh, wait… I got moderated, and I expected it, as it happened last year, too. Fortunately, the synapses were dried out enough this year for me to remember to just sit back patiently, and sure enough, I magically appeared… Read more »

*Bangs sippy cup on the table. Gd Damn why are my fucking comments not appearing…

Oh wait, this is a conservative adult site. I’ll just wait and let management take care of it and enjoy not having to read through thousands of penis enlargement spam.

Response to Library Czar @: I’ll just wait and let management take care of it and enjoy not having to read through thousands of penis enlargement spam. Have you been looking at my Rottie in-box again? I get almost 2,000 spams per week there, and not a single one on my “real” e-mail. I’ve been thinking of asking DJ to… Read more »

As a guy who runs a couple of websites myself, I loves me some Askimet. You would not believe the amount of shit it stops.

I also run Bad Behavior on my places and love it also. I can live with a little wait each year. :em02:

Yes, I would, if going by my spam mail is any indication.

Okay. I’m not a prolific poster, all you Rotts usually say everything worthwhile before my tired old fingers can type it. So I’ve never even really noticed a problem. I’ll just keep doing what I’ve been doing, at least I haven’t been kicked out yet! And thanks for letting me stick around. This is my favorite place on the Intertubewebthingie.

Even the benign Irish are beginning to feel the sting of Islam. http://www.u.tv/News/Honour-killing-inquiry-into-Irish-stabbing/a882f137-6f6a-4446-9edc-edcfc65b9b3b

Goodbye Leprechaunds, hello Allah.

For the statistics there are approximately 40,000 Muslims in Ireland, and a number of mosques. :em12:

Response to BC, Imperial Torturer @: BC: Try Mailwasher. I’ve been using it since the beta 10 years ago. You can add emails to the spam list, it remembers them, you can set up all sorts of filters. It also uses several databases of know spam addresses. When you’ve sorted what you want to keep, hit the Wash Mail button… Read more »

Off topic but … AX Rep. Giffords shot in the head at a public gathering I see several things happening from this and not one of them are good .. 1. Screams for more gun control 2. ‘Reichstag moment’ anyone? 3. If the shooter, who is in custody, has Jihadi connetcions, expect that to be quashed as much as possible… Read more »

This is horrible and not the way we are to conduct a democratic republic. We voted in November and she won, get over it. Prayers for her family.

She’s still alive and in surgery by last report. NPR jumped the shark declaring her dead. She’s in critical condition.

w00t! I don’t know if it was one of my settings in Opera or some bug in the old site, but I can post again! It was getting to the point where I was actually almost considering the thought of maybe going back to Exploder.

Of course, there’s always SeaMonkey…
