Daily Blog ‘Open Mike’

The Daily Blog has started an ‘Open Mike’

If we aren’t covering an issue you think needs debating today – go for it. Moderation rules apply, play nicely. 

A comment at The Standard raises an interesting point.

just saying

I guess “the more the merrier”, but I doubt the heavy moderation policy over there will be able to accomodate the sort of discussions we have here. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.

The fact that all Daily Blog comments have to be approved by site ‘moderation’ before going public is an impediment to open and dynamic discussion.

I have posted a comment asking “How open is this? Can anyone contribute?”

So far my comment is still ‘in moderation’.

  1. Moderation is a pain. It’s just a pity that some bloggers have been abused, or have been opened up to libel.
