When you post a comment on someone's website.

I think moderation in blogs, chatrooms, forums, etc is wrong. I understand that we are talking about private web space here - akin to "you're on my property"; but, I think the internet should be the medium to mature past that insecure mentality because our identities here can be relatively anonymous.

Another argument against my claim may be - it is best for society, if we edit out irrelevant, or inflammatory posts. I do agree, that theoretically that would be ideal. But realistically, people can not judge another persons communication to determine what is best for society. That other person might be thinking beyond our understanding. Plenty revolutionary scientists and political leaders have been - initially - dampened like this.

I believe that within chatrooms, forums, blogs, etc - we should be putting up with trolls so that we receive, upon closer inspection, valuable communication

I'm mostly just annoyed that my comment isn't immediately online.

awaiting moderation just means the website owner has to approve your comment

apologies.. I just now saw your question... I was up late hors modifying my site.

No worries :-)

It just means that the website owner hasn't approved the comment yet, so no one can see it but you.

Thank you Nathaniell :-)

I believe Marion gave you the great answer.

You've already received a few comments but one of the options not yet mentioned is that as a website admin you have the option to edit comments as well as approve or delete them. I sometimes take the opportunity to include my keyword in someone's comment when I approve it. It just helps a little with SEO. ~Marion

Thank you for the answer Marion! :-)

Thanks Marion!
I have never done that! But this is truly great information. I will definitely do so from now on.
Should you edit the comment before approving or doesn't it make any difference? I should think that it is better to edit the comment before approving it so that Google does not realize you have edited it.
Furthermore if it is an inappropriate comment: Is it okay to edit it a 100 % and change everything about it?

I always edit before approving (unless it doesn't require editing) but I wouldn't do a 100% change because it may be one of the spam comments and their URL would not be good for Google rankings.

Yes, that makes absolutely sense!
Thanks for the great answer!

Comments can at times be inappropriate of irrelevant, being able to moderate gives us the opportunity to accept the comment or delete it.

Now I understand.
Thank you.

There is an option for automatically posting comments - don't do it!

You WANT to moderate and check your visitors comments before posting - it will also catch all the spam you may receive.

Thank you :-)

They won't post your comment on their website until they have looked at it and determined that it is appropriate.

Thanks Van.

It simply means that the admin of the website needs to approve your comment before it will be published on the website for everyone to see!

There are lot of spam bots out there which are posting spam comments and as an admin you want to disapprove comments like this.


Furthermore sometimes there are comments from regular people being so plain stupid that the admin might not like to see it published as well :)

By the way: In wordpress this is the preset standard option that you need to approve comments on your website.

Thank you Sebastian. I'm a newbie, so now I know with the information given :-)
Cheers!

What does it mean, "your comment is awaiting moderation?"
