Comment Approval

What, you may be wondering, is the deal with the requirement that comments be held for approval before they're published? The deal, in short, is that it's a mistake and it'll be fixed soon. This is one of the reasons why we've been playing around with the site a bit this weekend before the "official" launch tomorrow.

Incidentally, as I'm sure you can tell from the nav bar, The Atlantic is offering other fine blog products besides this one. In particular, James Fallows and Ross Douthat are doing Atlantic blogs and, of course, Andrew Sullivan's been blogging away here for a while. Clearly I would say this, but I think it's a pretty stellar cast of blog colleagues I've got here.
