#5548 new enhancement

A more inclusive commenting policy for P2

Comments on some P2s and on some posts are more actively monitored than others.
While I understand requiring a previously approved comment in order to help combat spam, this can really get in the way of people contributing and having a diversity of opinions within an appropriate timeframe. This policy can contribute to echo chambers and those are uncool.

I would strongly advise that someone who has a previously approved comment on any P2 should be allowed to comment on another P2.
I would recommend at least not requiring comment moderation if the user has author+ caps on any other .org site, to facilitate inter-team collaboration.

To understand the need for this, I ran a query to find out which P2's have the relevant option enabled.

And those who don't have it enabled:

I've removed some sites from the list that are either private, or not intended to be commented on.

I personally think that we should simply disable the "users must have had a approved comment" globally for make.
