Surely the name "Beano Staff" was a dead giveaway?
You'd think so, but Steve Henderson obviously doesn't agree. It's not unlike a message board. Here, the mods names appear in red, everyone else's in black. I was only saying maybe that's what Beanotown.com should do.
Presumably members' aliases have to be approved before they can comment, (in case anyone uses an inappropriate name) so anyone calling themselves "Beano Staff" who wasn't Beano staff wouldn't get through would they?
They do moderate, but I would think it would be to prevent swearing. They don't check too thoroughly what's being said though, I've seen a comment asking who the artist is, posted after
