We get a fair amount of email asking variations of the question, “Why didn’t my comment get posted?” In an effort to help answer that question once and for all, we offer the following advice:
We are not like the sites you may be used to. We welcome intelligent discourse that brings something to the discussion; we also welcome respectful disagreement with sources and/or facts. We do not, however, allow excessive profanity, open disrespect of the authors/other commenters, or walls of text. We have a 250 word limit on comments; anything over that and the author may delete it.
If your comment fit the above criteria and you still aren’t seeing it, wait 24 hours before emailing. All comments are moderated and it may take us that long to get back to approve it.
Any further questions can probably be answered, once again, by reading the comment policy.
