Lifted from the comments:
"HEY, what's with the comment moderation?"
Ok here's the deal. As I explained in an earlier post my current job has very restricted internet access. I can hit the "blogger" page to publish and edit posts and moderate comments but I cannot see my own blog or add comments since all "blogspot" sites are blocked. I suppose it is only a matter of time until blogger itself is blocked but we'll see.
ANYWAY, it makes me very uneasy to leave my blog up all day long without knowing what is being said in the comments, plus it makes me feel like I'm left out of my own party.
All that said, I will only keep the moderation up during the work day and I will try to publish comments as soon as I see them. I will not delete or edit a comment unless I find it vicious or innappropriate in the extreme.
Thanks for putting up with me.
