I absolute agree to delete unacceptable comments. It’s your blog and if there are “stupid” comments, it look like that you don’t care about it.
I often read the newspaper on internet and under the article is always discusion. But most of time the 30% comments are just personal attack, who cares about that? I would like to read the discusion not personal feeling or that someone have a bad mood.

Good posts, unmolested or moderated to appear, show up. Junk posts made by robots are noted for future Bayesian improvement, and deleted.

But posts that are hateful, indecent, or otherwise improper, and made by human beings, would be shifted into a different area in which those comments would be available to anyone who had the academic interest to read. While you cannot be called a censor (given you don’t control all fora), it would be an interesting experiment. On my various blogs and lists, I have always been a strong moderator, so I’ve never tried this particular idea.

Back in 1994 to 1996, when I ran the Internet Marketing Discussion List, early on was given grief about my moderation policies. I said to the grief causers, hey, start your own list, and I’ll promote it on my list. If people prefer an unmoderated, unfettered discussion, I will lose subscribers, you will gain them. Of course, the competing list wound up with a few hundred people, discussion went out of control, and spammers took over. I had 7,000 subscribers by the time I shut the list down.
