PG is going to leave the commenting settings as-is for today unless something strange occurs.
So far, he hasn’t seen any terrible consequences with his current settings.
He’s still seeing a few comments requiring his approval from people who shouldn’t need it, but there is a general improvement. He’ll plan to pay a bit more attention to comments than usual to comments that haven’t made it through then reevaluate tomorrow morning.
PG appreciates the patience of many commenters. He has used his current commenting setup for several years and this is the first time it has begun to act erratically .
