Sometimes NO Comments are Better!

If an educator is using a blog as a public classroom newsletter they may consider turning off comments. 

Why would a teacher want to do this? 

The internet is a vast global place not limited to the parents and students within their school community. Also maintaining a blog could become time-consuming when having the need to moderate comments. 

When comments are moderated this sends a notification to the educator's email inbox. There is No reason why strangers should have the ability to flood a teacher's inbox. Not when parents and student already have the educator's email address and/or contact phone number.
