FYI, Captcha was disabled for about a week — we were listening to those of you who were frustrated with the Bnet comment interface.  As you might guess, we were inundated by spam comments during this time.  So, now we’re turning it back on, but without the time-out function.  That should save you some frustration when you comment.

However, some of you are still duplicating your comments because it doesn’t seem that your comment went through the first time.  So, let me suggest this: before posting your comment, copy the text of it to your clipboard.  Then post it, and go pour yourself a cup of coffee.  If you’re uncertain whether your comment went through, check for it in the comment section before you re-post it.

Also, I occasionally delete comment if I find them overtly offensive.  Bnet editors also delete comments, as they recently did to an entire back-and-forth string between EricW and Mr. Incredible.  While I probably would have let their comments stand, the Bnet editors are charged with keeping Bnet a safe and welcoming community.  If they determine that comments impinge upon that, they will unpublish those comments.

Some of you have accused me of deleting comments that I don’t agree with.  I haven’t done that once.  I usually delete about one comment per week.  The Bnet editors delete comments more frequently than I do, but it is never for ideological reasons.  It’s always for issues of tone and language.
