    Default Comment Moderation: Yes or No?

    Do you require your comments from first time visitors to be moderated first or do you allow all comments through (except those marked as spam)?

    Obviously moderation has its benefits and other than the time it takes to moderate each comment I can't see a reason for not moderating.

    So do you moderate? If yes, why? If not, why not?

    Moderation is important to avoid spam and demotivate spammers. Moderation is also important so that you only pass very relevant content on your blog.

    It's better to moderate the comments. That way you can decide what comment you would like to appear and delete unwanted comments.

    If your site is new established, i think no need to moderate the comments. However, once your site become popular, then moderation is a MUST. Simply, because spammer mostly target the popular one.
