The People Have Spoken

All Posts No Comments

OK that was a short-lived experiment… I am dropping the comment moderation feature except for posts that are more than 14 days old. What you people weren’t realizing is that my older posts are getting spammed too, so that if someone stumbled upon a “classic” Free Advice post in which I predicted the Dow Jones 3 years in advance, it would be inundated with ugg boots ads.

So this new compromise should work. I can prevent older posts from being filled with spam, but you guys can explain to each other how stupid you are in the comments in real time. As I drop in on new posts, I’ll try to zap the spam.

I think I should be congratulated for my willingness to admit my mistake and change policies so quickly. Can you imagine if Michael Chertoff were running this blog?
