Why comments will not be moderated



This was posted on The Register today. You can read it in full here-

"A blog owner can avoid liability for user-generated content that appears on his site without being checked or moderated, the High Court has ruled. But fixing the spelling or grammar in users' posts could lose him that protection, it said.

The Court ruled that the operator of blogging site Labourhome.org could not have a libel case struck out. The site operator, Alex Hilton, had said that his argument that he deserved exemption as a service provider was so strong that a trial was not necessary. The Court disagreed."

Hmmm. Any wishing to comment on my posts had better check their spelling or I might get into trouble...
