All you website owners out there using IntenseDebate as your comment system now have another arrow in your quiver (I’ve always wanted to say that…)

On the IntensDebate blog, they announced today the release of a new setting for reported comments – you know, the comments that your readers flag as inappropriate – you can now opt to have those comments automatically put into moderation for review. This is yet another way to keep your comments clean and free from crazy spammers.

Per their post, to enable this option, visit the Comments Settings, and check the box next to Send comments to moderation when reported (located at the bottom of the page). Save settings and you’re all good.

You can also enable the Auto-Delete setting for reported comments. With the Auto-Delete option, you can set a maximum number of times that a comment is reported before the comment is deleted.

Oh yeah – activating these features on our blogs…now !
