Links and comment moderation

Spammers seem to be finding the blog faster now that I have continued blogging, so I had to turn on comment moderation for all comments. Previously it was just for comments older than 14 days.

As for what I consider spamming, it mostly falls into one category: comments aiming solely to promote a commercial web site. It doesn't matter where the link is, in the comment or in the user name of the commenter, I consider these spam and will delete the comment. If you wish to advertise in my blog, you can do what proper advertisers do and pay for it.

However, links to commercial sites in relevant context are OK. With this, I mean comments actually related to the issue of the blog post, where the link is a relevant part of a comment (for example, a link to a doll page on a web store).

Links to private blogs and other non-commercial sites are fine as long as the site is suitable for children.
