  • Good , I will keep them as my it good :D

  • You shouldn't moderate comments (making people wait for approval for a comment). See my blog on community and privacy about how to fix this.  if you read the comments you will see that nobody likes to have their comments moderated and it is not necessary on a site like this. Nobody will write bad things on your page here.

  • I think this is useful for people who use the chat or use SMS on their phones.  The WTF is actually a pretty bad one to use and certainly not for use to someone like a teacher or parent. Thank you for writing. I hope you will write some more blogs and gain experience and confidence Arm@n.
