emptywheel welcomes comments that are respectful and on point. Our comment policy aims to preserve the quality of discussion here — which is generally very high (thank you smart emptywheel readers!). So we use the following approach:
Your first comments — as well as comments that are very long or look like spam — will be moderated. We’re generally pretty quick at releasing comments, but that depends on how busy our lives get. Please be somewhat patient!
The latest incarnation of emptywheel (thanks MilleniaLab!) includes registration for enhanced commenting. Benefits of registering include:
The comment form formatting tools are available only to registered users.
The “edit your own comment function” is only available to registered users.
Any other custom functions we make will only be available to registered users.
The reason why is secure code, and WordPress. These functions are only available to registered users. Otherwise, the HTML or Script isn’t available. This is to combat ‘bots.
