The New York Times is helping its readers get a taste of the work and thought process that goes into moderating comments with a comment moderation test. With some rules as background, readers are given five comments, which they can then approve or reject. Once the reader makes their choice, they’re then given an explanation of why NYT moderators would have either approved or rejected the comment.
