Comment moderation is ON

I turned on comment moderation, and turned off word verification. Also, you don't have to have a blogger account to comment now either. I figured if I was looking at all of them first, the spam and the nitwits can get chomped on without the added layers.

Let's see how this works. Feel free to let me know if you think it sux.

I think it's a damned shame, but I can sure see the necessity. Consign all nitwits to Hell forthwith!

Would anyone ever dare suggest anything Miss Snark does "sux"?

You are the Mistress of your Universe, you decide whether gravity applies or not (sadly, the older I get, it certainly applies to me).

Just don't weed out *all* the nitwits - we have great amusement value at parties.

This is lovely. Taking a short break from Hell Forthwith.

I am the real "Nitwit" and the other guy is an imposter. Feels great to come out of the blog closet.

I've been laughing all day...leave the nitwits in!

Yippee, I can comment. I've been unable to sign up to blogger for some reason (not Mac friendly?) and so was doomed to lurk. So the changes work for me, thanks Miss Snark.

Jodi said...

Yay! I can comment now! Thanks. :D

I can certainly appreciate the no 'word verification' thing. I hated that. I have to feel sorry for you needing to read through all the posts first though.

Hahahahaha, TeenaM.

I'll bet you were chomping the bit to shreds at not having the ability to comment during the "nitwit" debacle.

Ah, I can finally extend my compliments, having enjoyed this prolific and informative blog for a while now without being able to speak up.

Thank you, Miss Snark. You know your stuff, you share your knowledge generously, and your sense of humor is delightful.

I hope you don't mind more traffic, because I recommend this blog to struggling writers on another web site.

A Question for Miss Snark: A month ago, I called an editor at a big house in NY to share with her the good news that in Spring '07 my novel--that she rejected a couple of years ago, after keeping me hanging for months on end--is going to be published by another big house in NY. She was, as always, chilly about the whole thing. I thanked her for her interest, which kept me writing, and wished her well. After I hung up, I felt, well, wretched. Although I didn't actually say, "Nah-nah! You missed out!" my motives included this sentiment. Should I feel like a dweeb? Or was it okay to let Miss Icicle know I am not spinning off into void because she didn't like my stuff?

Miss Snark --

It's so wonderful to be able to thank you.

Your thoughtful advice has kept me from giving it all up, becoming a fraudulent medium and scamming the elderly of their savings.
