Since the launch of Prime late last year, TPM now has two commenting ecosystems. Keeping the public comments free of trolls and harassing behavior is a constant challenge. So to help us with the task and to keep the conversations on track and free of nonsense we’re now looking for a few volunteer community moderators.
What’s involved? Pretty simple. We’re a small operation. And our eyes can’t be everywhere at once. So if you’re a regular TPM Reader and already in the comments frequently just flagging us when something gets out of hand and zapping hate-speechy trolls when necessary. If you’re interested, please send us an email at talk (at) talkingpointsmemo.com and use the subject line: “Comment Moderator”.
On a separate note, we will likely in the not too distant future be moving to a system where all commenting will take place through a TPM registered account.
