Failed Experiment- Comment Moderation Back in Effect

Just a quick update on a sadly too shortly lived experiment here on ART Evolved. During the whole Gregory Paul Email discussions there were many non-members who complained their comments were being delayed by our moderation. As this was a valid complaint we decided to try delaying comment moderation for a couple days... Sadly a mere two weeks after we launched this delay trial, we have already received some X rated spam. So unfortunately that spells an end to this experiment. So once again we aplogize to our non-member readers for possible delays in your contributions to our discussions, but we hope you understand.

That's too bad; I quite liked the delayed moderation myself.

We liked it too, but our hypothesis on the spammers taking a few days to find posts turned out to be wrong today. It was a really vile site they were pushing too!

At least you got a cool cartoon out of it :)

Furman- Cheers. Credit for that goes entirely to Peter Bond.
