Comment Moderation Policy

As I am relatively new to blogging, I have been reading a couple books on the topic to maximize my value to you, the readers.  One of the books I am reading is “What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting”.  It is a great book.  I actually got a signed copy in the mail from the author (Ted Demoploulos) because I provided some feedback and advice on one of his websites that deals with Information Security Certifications –

One of the ideas it gave me was to explicitly spell out my policy regarding comments on my blog.  I do moderate comments, only to filter out spam, expletives, or otherwise unprofessional comments.  I don’t mind (even encourage) dissenting comments, as long as they are respectful and professional.

My hope is that this will be an open forum for people to exchange ideas and information.  Please feel free to leave comments, links to related material, etc.  It is this sense of community that will make a valuable resource.  I look forward to hearing from you!
