Scrutiny Hooligans has a comments policy that has worked really well for years. Since moving to WordPress, we’ve had 23,315 comments and 23,313 of those were approved. Our excellent Akismet Spam Filter protected the site from 24,262 spam comments. We’ve had only a few people breach the comments policy. We’ve got a sovereign admin who implements the policy.
For some, it’s not about the comments policy, it’s about how their ideas are received. I’ve seen some people claim that disagreement = intolerance. I’ve also seen folks wanting to have even the most absurd ideas treated as though they were Very Serious.
What are your thoughts?
