Jeremy Zilar is the Content Strategist and Blog Specialist at The New York Times where he has overseen the launch of over 200+ blogs and real-time news publishing.
Yesterday, Boing Boing posted an interesting diatribe on their comment moderation policies. Someone obviously got frustrated moderating comments and had to voice it. It is similar to posts I have seen on City Room and the Caucus.
All in all, these posts say a lot about the state of discourse on the web, and offer up clear examples of where the limitations currently are in constructing more focused conversations.
I thought you all might take solace in reading that other bloggers also face the good and the bad of on-line discourse. I have my hopes that the means of constructing a better conversation will only become better with time.
