Over the past few weeks I have been seeing more and more blogs that either don't allow comments or provide moderation. There are a few that I have been reading lately that provide the ability to add a comment to a post, but they get moderated and don't ever appear to be published.

The comments that I have left are relevant, they aren't confrontational and they add additional value to what the author has written. I get the feeling that the blogs are being neglected with nobody managing the comments. This is frustrating as it means that each time I leave a comment, I am just wasting my time. I might as well write the comment on a piece of paper and then through it in the bin!

While I believe that all blogs should allow people to post and publish comments, if you're not moderating the comments, then turn the comments feature off.

Rant over!
