Deleting Comments

It occurs to me that some posters may be curious about the "This post has been removed by a blog administrator" notices on the comments to many of my posts, and wonder if I'm censoring people who disagree with me.

I'm not. So far, all of the posts I have been deleted have been ones that make no contribution at all to the subject and are simply there to get a link up on the web to something else. Recently there have been a bunch of them where the text is "Hi, thank you very much. good job." The link is the name of the poster--not to his blogger.com profile but to a web page.

When you delete comments, there's a checkbox option labeled "permanently delete". If you check that box when deleting, the message "This post has been removed by a blog administrator" doesn't show up. It's as if the comment was never posted.

The comment problem is only going to get worse.

Id recommend switching to wordpress. It has better comment spam filters.

"If a copper mine shuts down in Chile the price of copper goes up, giving other producers an incentive to produce more copper, consumers an incentive to produce less."

Did you mean "consume less"?

Funny, until now I didn't notice "Name/URL" among the options.
