Some time ago I felt I had no choice but to put this blog on moderated comments. I didn't want to do it but circumstances made it necessary.

I had a comment that I chose not to put up, and at the same time I wanted to keep it, so I just left it without taking any action to post or reject. I thought it would just stay there forever. However, it's gone, which means an untouched comment has a shelf life and I didn't know that.

I don't know how long the shelf life is. I never went back to re-read the offending comment. I assumed that when the moderation page recorded only one comment, it was that comment. Now I know I may have been wrong.

If you have posted comments here and had them never appear, I apologize. I will be more careful in the future.

And now, on to other matters...

Anyone who has a blog knows about comment spam. You have to moderate comments, because even the best software for preventing comment spam can be circumvented. I don't think you need to feel bad about having your comments on moderation.
