Comments on: Blogonomics: True/Slant fails the interactivity test http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/13/blogonomics-trueslant-fails-the-interactivity-test/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Anonymous Coward http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/13/blogonomics-trueslant-fails-the-interactivity-test/comment-page-1/#comment-406 Tue, 14 Apr 2009 04:46:42 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/04/13/blogonomics-trueslant-fails-the-interactivity-test/#comment-406 The Reuters News RSS feeds are truncated, but the blog feeds are not.

Moderation is for libel reasons, mainly. We have had some awful problems with spam in the past, but it’s got better and the Anti-spam word helps.

Don’t blame Felix for big-company issues… The blogs were slipped under the radar a few years back (by convincing a network ops guy to add a DNS entry…), so they’re a bit of a fly-by-night thing.

AOHell was not exactly known for its fine Customer Service even before it joined the Parsons School of Mismanagement (TWX).

So not being able to contact Management(‘s secretaries) is likely a Feature, not a Bug.

The “house rules” also make it sound like they read every comment, then decide whether or not to publish, which seems to go against what you’re saying.

Also, the anti-spam word is annoying.

In what other field of human endeavour could such a person keep their job?

Many trolls tend to be self limiting: between being shouted down and removed, it works well, and it makes the conversation more immediate.
