During business hours, all comment will be published immediately. Outside of business hours, all comments need to be approved by speechbubble admin before they are published.
The first step is a human verification process to deter spam bots: when you submit a comment, you are asked to include a user name and an email address. You don’t have to include your actual details; you may post under a pseudonym.
In most cases, we’ll close comments on posts after a month or so. This is primarily to block spam comments from appearing on older posts; if you wish to provide feedback on or discuss an older post, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
