Should You Moderate Your Blog's Comments?

Our blog moderates comments. Below are some comments that went right to the Blogger spam folder, for obvious reasons you will see. Other comments which are not so obviously spammy are sent by Blogger software to the Reference Department email to moderate.  We love comments about our posts, about books, about library services, about Children's programs, about our databases and down-loadables, about what you are reading, about what we are reading. But, we do not want to be a venue for commercial advertising. Thanks, but libraries are non-profit and cannot promote one product over another. Isn't that nice that there is one place on the internet that does not advertise or take sides? For details, see our blog policy, which is posted right here on our home page. So, if you are a blogger and want to know whether to moderate comments or not, I have no idea what you should do, but be prepared for some pretty irrelevant (at best) comments if you just leave that commenting option wide open.

Thanks for the comments! (The end of each comment refers to the post they tried to 'comment' on. You can see that the comments are completely irrelevant to the topic. Nice try, though!)
