It is always pleasing when someone takes the time to write a comment on one's postings. When this happens the comments are always moderated and if they are decent, in English and make sense they are likely to be published. However, any comments that have links to other sites are always checked out first and if found to be links to sites containing spyware, trojans, offensive material or spam they will not be accepted. I may even, in certain circumstances, report the commentator to Google and in extreme circumstances (links to pornographic or racist sites for example) report them to the authorities.
Sadly, the vast majority of comments these days on all blogs are not suitable for publishing. However, please don't let that put you off if you are a genuine commentator. I check each comment and make my mind up by first reading the comment and checking any links it contains, so if you have something worth saying then it may very well be published!
