Blogging and moderation

There has been a recent trend amongst Welsh bloggers to move towards moderating comments. Some of my favourite blogs, including Ordovicius, Glyn Davies and Valleys Mam, moderate the comments on their blogs.

Even Iain Dale has reverted to this approach because of a "number of anonymous people who have returned to troll and smear".

Unfortunately, in the last few weeks, I have followed this trend. However, on reflection, you can get too precious and events like this can put blogging into perspective.

Blogging should be about having an open discussion and debate (as happens on Miss Wagstaff) and if some isolated idiots want to post anonymous comments, then so be it, although I will remove any that are offensive, abusive or legally defamatory.
