I have an "open door" policy on not moderating comments because I discovered that I was spending a lot of time reading perfectly ok comments before having them ok'd for publication in my blog.
However, I have a question about blocking.
When I write someone's name or email address (not IP address) for blocking, does that person/persons know immediately that he/she/they are blocked or is it just that they write a comment and leave, thinking that I disallowed it, but only after i've read it? I would like for a person to know immediately that his/her comment is not being published/saved for moderation to be later published. That stops future attempts.
The blog I need help with is peregrine5700.wordpress.com.
