Two levels to the comments section?
So I've been slacking off on my bhtv viewership lately and only got to the 3/7 Althouse/Merritt diavlog on 3/10 . . . one of the bloggers annoyed me to no end and i posted an (admittedly intemperate) comment and it didn't show up on the 'main" page, leading me to think it had been deleted by a moderator . . . but then it turns out it is there on the comments page . . .
So while I've never noticed any delay in having comments post immediately on the main page when one posts on a "current" thread, is there some sort of moderated delay when a thread is more than two days old? i don't necessarily think that'd be a bad idea (otherwise someone could always get the "last word' on ancient threads without other commenters noticing) but it would still be helpful to know what the policy is . . .
