In a few hours I’m going to be setting all comments to moderation and I can’t say how frequently I’ll be by to let them out. As I mentioned a while back, I have a lot on my plate right now. I’ve been able to keep an eye on the comments so far and even cranked out several posts, but I need to turn on comment moderation probably for the next few weeks.
I mention this so you can 1) get your comments in now if you have something you want to get in, and 2) so any other bloggers who want to host a discussion have an opportunity to announce this in the comments section of this post before I turn on moderation.
Edit: Just to clarify, this isn’t about me taking a heavy hand with the comments. I might decide to turn the dial a bit more that way in the future, but this is something different. I won’t be able to keep up with the discussion for extended periods of time so I’ll be turning on default moderation. Since I won’t be regularly checking the comment filters I won’t be freeing them up regularly either. This tends to ruin the flow of the discussion, which is why I thought some other bloggers might want to host specific conversations there. While there of course, you will need to follow their rules. Either way, the manosphere must go on, with or without me actively participating for the next few weeks.
Update: Comments are now set to always go to moderation. It may be a while before I can check in and release them.
