I'm removing moderation from the comments section on this blog for a bit, to see how it goes. That means your comment will get published right away, in theory. It also means that if you post things that are insulting, off-topic, or whatever, I will need to proactively delete them instead of letting them sit in moderation. If folks abuse it, I'll go back to moderation.
The downside is that I may not notice that someone has commented, and consequently may not answer their comments, as I have tried to do previously. The good news, I guess, is that the number of comments in moderation (presently around 300 or so) should gradually decrease as I clear them out either by publishing them or rejecting them.
