I definitely agree. Instead of making people wait for some arbitrary approval process (i.e. whenever the blogger logs on, they’ll approve all comments at once) which stifles the conversation, create a comments policy that says you, as the blog owner, have the right to edit or remove offensive comments, blah, blah,
that way you still have a sense of control in case the conversation gets out of hand, if you’re worried about that. You probably won’t have to mess with editing or deleting comments, but if you’re making people wait for you, goodbye conversation.
I mean think about it, if you are approving comments before they post, how many times have you had to delete a comment? Usually only when someone repeats one because theirs didn’t appear and they didn’t realize you had it set up for approvals!
Oo, I’ll have to disagree with you on comment moderation. That’s a different situation than registration and login to comment.
I’ve set our own blog on fire a few times (with posts that we never thought would be controversial, I might add), and we’ve seen some pretty heavy hitters move in.
While we try to maintain an open comment policy and take the bad with the good, we do delete highly offensive comments that start with F and rhyme with “puck”.
