Yes, it’s true.
I do occasionally moderate your comments.
I don’t have any hard and fast rules to refer you to. If anyone is really into rule making, perhaps you can suggest a workable set of rules.
Sometimes I delete things that strike me as potentially libelous or, more typically, are just unnecessarily nasty.
In a few cases, I will simply edit and approve the edited comment. Other times I just delete in total.
On still other occasions, someone will comment several times on the same issue using different pseudonyms. I do try to cut those off.
My main goal is to reward serious and substantive exchanges of views, while limiting those who just want to “talk stink.”
If you use a valid email address, I will often try to contact you prior to editing or deleting a comment. But I don’t have any qualms about deleting anonymous comments that aren’t constructive.
And, by the way, insults about the blogger by anonymous commenters are a quick way to find future comments blocked.
As I say, fair warning.
