This blog is set up where I must approve all comments before they are posted. I don’t and never have done this to squelch dissent or differing opinions. I do this so that 4 letter words and the likes don’t end up in the comments. I can think of only 2 comments I have deleted and 1 that I bleeped the language, but they were enough to convince me that even with the paltry number of comments I receive, I must keep moderating. If I had bleeped the language on the first 2 there wouldn’t have been much left, so I just deleted. Language is also the reason I have put (PG) next to a few blog links.
The need for comment moderating and the fact that I have a job, family and a life beyond this blog means that comments may not post until the next day.
