More on Comments

Well folks, the moderated comments seem to be working much better, but I wanted to say a few things about what constructive criticism is. I appreciate criticism that is constructive because it helps me to hone my homilitic skills. But there seems to be some misunderstanding about what constructive criticism really is. It is not saying something like "that homily was horrible." Rather,it would be something like "I didn't like the homily because Father used a bad analogy. He might try using this one..." Constructive criticism will help me improve my homilies, so if you want your comment posted please make sure the criticism is constructive not just destructive.

You could also try Halo comments. I think that's what its called. Its a comment system that can be imposed on your current blog.

Using the Halo system you can actually ban people's ip addresses from being able to comment. But that has limited effect since they could have access to multiple internet connections.

When I ran a blog (years ago) I used that system to ban rude and crude people and it worked rather well since I could just ban them instead of spending time moderating comments.
