Commenting System — Huge Apologies

April 14th, 2011 by  

This is not the kind of news I like to run into. We recently changed our commenting system. We started using DISQUS as it is considered by many to be one of the best commenting systems, if not the best one, out there. And we love it, too.

However, a little problem popped up. While the place where we normally go to moderate comments still receives some comments awaiting moderation, most of the comments awaiting moderation get fed somewhere else. I also see a notification that I have comments needing approval in the old place but not the new place. I didn’t noticed this until just this morning — I just thought the comments were being auto-approved or being fed to the normal place. The result: a ton of comments were awaiting moderation for quite some time (since about a week ago). I just went through and approved them all (except for a few that were clearly SPAM).

I know when you leave a comment, you want others to see it. And we value your comments greatly (which is why we made the switch).

From now on, if your comment isn’t auto-approved by the system, it will be quickly approved by me (unless it is automatically marked as SPAM by the system — hopefully, if you’re human and reading this, that won’t happen). Generally, the only comments that won’t be auto-approved are comments that include links or look potentially illegitimate to the system for some other reason.

Again, apologies and hope you won’t hold it against us.
