Shadow Banning of comments


The title’s self explanatory. For or against (for non-spam commenters)?

    I don't understand what you're asking, actually.

    If it's whether we silently ban or delete a particular individual's comments or whatever, the answer is no.

    Or are you asking whether we (or readers) are pro or against shadow banning? I'm not sure what the case is for doing that to non-spam accounts.

    I made a reply to Paul's comment on the forum post Premium article comments for non-premium users when I iew the forum and am logged in I can see the post if I log out and view the post it does not appear. in both cases the counter indicates 5 comments when there are actually 6 if you count mine. Is that the type of thing you are seeing? Also please excuse the font and weight selection it came with the copy / paste of the forum topic and I have not managed to make it go away. Of course I am not trying very hard since my bet would be that this post will be in the bit-bucket for everyone but me. The comment procedure on the site has the 'FUBAR' light on and flashing.
