Too many silly comments have been made on this blog recently, so I have changed the settings to allow me to review comments before they are posted. If comments are serious and related to the topic, regardless of which side of the debate they may be on, they will be posted; otherwise, they will not. This restriction will not apply to my fellow blog managers.
If I had the ability to add approved commenters, I would since we have many regular commenters who contribute a great deal to the blog, but there is no such option in blogger, as far as I know.
I apologize for any inconvenience. Comments will still be posted as soon as I get a chance to review them, so please continue to comment.
