We operate a fairly laissez-faire moderation policy here at CP&S: unless your first comment is an outrageous defamation of the Church, you’re likely to get published.
However, we do pre-approve posters’ FIRST comments. And we measure this by their email address or user name if they are registered with wordpress.
So, if your email address is “Johngoodman77@vatican.va” and we approve your first comment and then you post as “email@example.com” your comment is going to get held up in moderation.
This isn’t an evil conspiracy, this is just the way that wordpress works.
