A Bit of Housekeeping Regarding Comments

I’ll keep this short: A new comment filter was added to the site without my knowledge… but the goal was obviously to eliminate spam, nasty insults, and the like. Nothing wrong with that. For at least a couple of days now, if you used a word on the list, your comment went into moderation.

The problem is that a lot of perfectly fine comments weren’t showing up on the site because they got caught in the filter.

I went through the list and removed words that we use frequently on this site. After all, it’s hard to talk about the Catholic Church, certain religions, abortion legislation, sex education, etc. without getting into specifics of what’s happening. Words that can be used in nasty ways are also useful and appropriate in other situations (the list included “gay,” “hell,” and “job”).

If your comment shows up as pending now, it should be obvious why that’s the case. Try rewording it and see what happens.

But if you think it’s unfairly being held up, just get in touch with me and I’ll try to fix it. Sorry for the annoyance!
