There is a new feature for users of blogs.msdn.com. They are able to moderate comments now. Since some of the users experienced "spam attacks". Ok, I hate spam. But, imho moderating comments is worse than blog without comments at all. All the idea of weblogs and "word of mouth" is destroyed here. And seems that Microsoft is really listening only to what it wants to listen. Hm, it's true. I noticed several times my comments were removed from blogs.msdn.com, when people didn't like them. It was not spam, it was not even offensive. I never remove comments from my weblog. Robert Scoble does have comments and I think he does not moderate them. I don't like when someone erases my words but I hate when someone moderates them. May be people doing that are just not ready for the blogosphere ?
