A Much Better Idea (IMHO)
Take a look at my post for a far better idea than this niggling over comment brevity.  Rather than open the door to recriminations and false accusations, as does the

comment reporting system
(Boo! Hiss!),

my proposal
(Hear! Hear! )

addresses the underlying flaw in the Blogit system.

I never get tired of getting a rose. It is a woman thing.

Censorship is not good. We know who is faking and who

is sincere.

To make sure it's clear, the original News entry was updated yesterday to note that this requirement is no longer in effect and provide info on how to report comment spam.

I have to agree with Shelly.

I think this new rule is unnecessary and unduly restrictive. (And in case you haven't noticed, I don't have any problems exceeding fifteen letters in most of my comments.)

I understand the rationale, but sometimes you just don't need to leave a long comment to let a writer know that you read and liked their post. "I agree; good post!" is a perfectly fine (and IMO very welcome) comment, but this new rule would make it unacceptable.

Besides, where does that leave blogs like "name that tune," in which the majority of comments are song titles and artists? "Mandy (B. Manilow)" is an acceptable and reasonable comment for that blog, yet it would not be accepted under the new rule.

IMO, if you are having problems with comment spammers, there are several solutions that don't punish everyone for the misdeeds of a few. First, writers can be a little less snippy about short comments or emoticon-laden comments. Hey, someone left you a comment, eh? Be happy! But if people are commenting in ways a particular writer dislikes, then those individual writers can delete those comments with a couple of clicks. (I do.) And the writers can report comment spammers. Finally, comment spammers could be warned that their misuse of the comments must cease unless they want to be removed from the site.

Sorry, but I really don't like this..
it takes the fun out of commenting.  I only think that the people who were spamming should have to do this. I am not happy.
