I saw Nicholas Goodman's post last week to his blog titled "BLOGS WITHOUT COMMENTS ARE SUPER LAME!
". This is quite interesting as I have been looking into how I can re-enable comments on my blog. I disabled them last December and talked about it in a post titled "Comments have been disabled from my weblog
". I use Greymatter and it does not support comment moderation. It does support comment throttling and black list checking and link quantity checking all via mods that can be added. Comment moderation would be the better solution as it allows every comment to be checked and approved to ensure that it is not spam. I looked at upgrading to Movable Type or WordPress sometime ago as these both support comment moderation but decided not to for various reasons. I started to re-look at comment moderation last week and decided that maybe the way to do it is to add the functionality to Greymatter myself. I have been through the Perl code and have a plan of how to do it. I discussed my ideas in a thread in the Greymatter Forums titled Comment moderation mod
Anyways I will keep you posted on progress and hopefully soon I will re-open comments on this blog.
