TSA Blogger Bob Watched Closely By Readers – NextGov

The Transportation Security Administration came under fire from Internet users on Nov. 17 for being too slow to moderate and post readers’ comments onto its blog, a sign the site is being read closely.

An impatient reader, noticing that comments weren’t coming through, posted to Reddit on Tuesday, “The TSA is censoring all comments on their blog. Do you think we hurt their feelings?

  • In their (TSA) defense it's common practice to moderate comments for a government blog. I myself do the same. I'm guessing that the comments that were being moderated, of which were impatiently being waited for, were nothing more than flame material anyway. There is little reason for anyone to expect that a government site, even in today's “transparency” age, wouldn't moderate.

    Perhaps the internet is to fast?
