It's been fun commenting on the ABC religion web site. You can see me there as "Declan". But the slow turnaround and moderation policies for comments can be frustrating. I started this blog so I could publish my reactions without having them filtered by the moderators.
I have posted many comments which have completely failed to appear on the site. The process is opaque to me. I can never be sure if the comment has been rejected for breaching the site's policies, or if there's been a technical error. Now I get to be my own moderator, and test the limits of my own transparency!
