As of Today, Comments Are No Longer Moderated

Posted on 10 March 2014 by Andrei

Up until this point, all comments had to be approved manually before appearing on DomainingTips but as of today, I’m going to try an experiment and disable comment moderation altogether. That way, your comment *should* appear instantly, assuming of course that it isn’t caught by a filter (for example, if your comment contains a bunch of links, the filter will catch it and the comment in question will not appear until I approve it). requested this change yesterday as well as a few days ago and I’m sure other people feel the same way, so I decided to give it a try.

If it proves to be too much of a hassle, I’ll switch to moderated comments again but for the most part, I’m glad to say that the debates on DomainingTips have thus far been civilized and constructive even when people disagreed. If things remain this way and I hope they do, the “unmoderated comments” change will be permanent.

I’d like to thank everyone who engaged in civilized debates on DomainingTips up until this point, each comment helps readers see things from a different perspective and that ultimately puts people in a better position to make informed decisions.

No matter which side of the fence you’re on, I’m sure everyone agrees that our industry is going through unprecedented changes and each post as well as each comment is more important than most people realize. I’m looking forward to interacting with you guys more and more with each day/week/month that passes, turning DomainingTips into a platform that encourages debates which help domainers make the right choices will be a hard but fascinating experiment :)

    @Drunk Poster: your comment ended up being caught by the filter due to the fact that it contained lots of links (up until this point, all comments were moderated but as mentioned in my post, even after the moderation has been disabled, comments such as those which contain lots of links are automatically caught and have to be approved manually), I approved it a few moments ago.

    Regarding your question, if you want to register dot photos domains, I’d recommend focusing on keywords which make sense for this particular gTLD rather than LLLs or CVCVs. For example,, and so on.

    Drunk is right….

  5. Says:


    Most domain blogs get 0 to 10 comments, or visitors per post, so it makes no sense. The idea of a blog is to get vigorous discussion and ideas. Trolls such as Drunk will eventually go away or be shunned, or even have their posts deleted.

    lol…he most likely gives all the traffic, that’s why it sold for 3.1 million.
