Comments are amazing for an article writer because it shows that people are reading your content and enjoying the content that they read. It also encourages other readers to discuss the article when they see other comments. But do you guys moderate your comments? By this I mean do you have it so that comments have to be approved before they are visible on the website? The problem I find with this is that sometimes comments don't appear quickly because staff take too long to approve the comments. Another problem is that comments may not be approved if it is critical of the blog or has a fair point but does not align with the staff's political/general views.
