When considering the various pros and cons of employing an on-site comments section, publishers can sometimes feel a bit wary of the potential burden of comment moderation that comes along with one.

One of the key attributes of any successful moderation system is its scalability. For communities with high levels of user engagement, this is especially true—higher engagement translates into more comments and users to have to potentially monitor.
