Comments are moderated because I hate spam. Not even with pineapple.
Generally, I will let your comment through. I believe in free speech and lively conversations, but the fact that I may choose to not approve your comment isn’t infringing on that right. I am not the government.
This is my blog. Not yours.
Any emails sent to me may be shared as part of a blog post. I may even use your name. You could be famous!
