This blog is open to everyone for posting a new subject or comment to existing post provided you are a registered user (see instructions. Below).

What is Moderation
Moderators are HEC member volunteers who have given special rights for approving the posts. When a post is made, stays in a “pending” state until it is approved/published. The only reason for this is to stop the SPAM. The main duty of the moderator is to review “pending” postings and upon his or hers approval the post is published “posted” on the blog. There should be a group of moderators to divide among themselves the monitoring of the blog. Ideally the blog should be monitored 24×7 so if someone submits a post, it will be reviewed, approved and published within a short period of time. The approval and publishing is very simple process and it is done by just clicking the approval button next to each “pending” post.

The moderator is to block only the SPAM (posts attempted by unauthorized/unregistered users) and not posts from registered users.

All posts are approved for publishing unless they are not of political/partisan content or lobbying for political causes.
