For reasons I explained here, I have enabled comment moderation on this blog.
There is, I admit, a good reason for suspicion of this practice. After all, if comments are subject to moderation, how is the reader to know that I am not censoring insightful and trenchant criticism of my posts? Answer: the reader cannot know.
So, I can understand if you feel suspicion of this new policy, but I can only give you my word that I shall not censor any comments solely on the grounds that they tear a point of mine to pieces.
