Blogger Introduces Comment Moderation

It’s been a long time coming and it’s finally here.

Now if they will only give us the ability to edit and search comments we will finally have a full-featured commenting system. What’s also on my wish list? Support for Trackback and PHP. Are you listening Blogger?

Although I appreciate the extra control, I can’t help but notice that Google did this out of necessity because of the recent Blogger spamalanch, rather than out of the goodness of their heart.

It also demonstrates to me that they have the resources and capability to add more features very quickly, so long as they have the proper motivation of course.

So my question to Google is, what are you waiting for? Another problem? Why not just make blogger the premier the blogging service and be done with it?

We’ve just introduced a frequently-asked for feature, comment moderation. By using this feature, you can approve or reject what would-be commenters are looking to post before it goes live on your blog.

This is useful in situations where you’re looking for a bit more control over the conversation hosted on your blog. Additionally, comment moderation will prevent unwanted comment spam if previous deterrents like word verification and rel=”nofollow” have proven insufficient.

You can choose to moderate your comments via either email or from blogger.com. To enable the feature go to the Settings | Comment tab of your blog. As always, more information on how to use this feature can be in the help.
