I haven’t spent much time with blogs, but from the description it seems to be similar to this forum except that the staff gets to write an initial article to start the thread.  Or am I confused?

I was going to say I don’t think so because the article indicated that they were just setting it up, but you have a point, George.  Are they going to convert this forum to the blog?

George’s “this” is a link that can be clicked. Yes, it’s now on the CFI front page:

It seems there is another “George” who posted on the new CFI blog (“Obama to Gays and Lesbians: Go to Hell”). How can two different participants share the same name?

Ah, and here I was assuming that was you!

Odd. I just posted a reply there and it does not show. Are comments approved before appearing?

I don’t think so, but I suppose approval could be turned on or off. NB: the blog has just come online, and there are doubtless going to be some teething problems and probably reworkings as it goes forward.

Okay. I am changing my name to C. George. “C” is for curious.

Chris, I do see a new post of yours ... is that the one? There also may be some backend delay on the server. I don’t know.

Yes, my post has now appeared. Perhaps they’re using an old TRS-80 for their server…

Some blogs do have a feature where comment posts are held to the side briefly, until they have been skimmed over for content. Then they are “approved” and show up. Good for those times when weirdos post lots of foul language or pointless rambling bible verses.

Other blogs let everyone post immediately, but periodically skim through and remove any offensive posts or spam.

... or you can switch back and forth depending on how the comments are coming in.
