Tired of Waiting for Your Comment to Be Displayed at The Humble Libertarian?

Oh good! -because I'm tired of constantly having to approve them! IntenseDebate has overall been a positive addition to this website, but among the one or two bugs it has that have really been a drag for me (and some of you, I suspect) is how sensitive its comment moderation is.

I check e-mail enough times a day that I have been able to get most of your comments up usually not more than a couple hours after you've posted them, but if you're obviously not spamming me I don't think it's fair that you should have to wait to see your comment and have the opportunity for others to see it and respond to it. Pretty much other than spam, I don't myself moderate at all.

So that being said, IntenseDebate does offer a "white-listing" option if you sign up for an IntenseDebate account at their website or have a WordPress account. If you would like to be white-listed to get your comments posted automatically no matter what (and save me some time in the process!), just leave your WordPress or IntenseDebate username in the comment thread of this post.

Sign up for an account if you don't have one, but would like to get white-listed. At the end of the weekend, I'll white-list everybody who leaves their username here. Thanks!
