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).
Domenclature.com 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
