Their main channel, A Voice in the Desert, has opened up the comment section on their videos. Comments for their other channels are still disabled. Here is the pinned comment on all AVID videos:
READ THIS FIRST. We have recently opened our videos up for comments. However, the comments are all moderated; they must be approved before they will appear. Please be patient, as this could take a few days if I am busy with other things.
Here are some guidelines if you would like to have your comment approved:
1. Keep it short. This rule is partly to help YOU. People simply will not read long, rambling posts.
2. Keep it relevant. (See also #3 & #4.) Relate what you are saying to the video you are commenting on, or to something said by the person to whom you are replying.
3. No sermons. If you want to preach, do so on your own channel. This is a forum for discussion.
4. Bible references: Say enough to indicate what the passage says, but major on sharing how you think it relates to the topic. Try to avoid chapter and verse references on their own.
5. Rudeness will not be tolerated.
6. No links. This is generally seen as trying to drag people away from this channel to some other channel or site.
7. One point at a time. Many different arguments in the same post do not allow time for two sides to be heard on a single point. Share your best argument (or two), and see what happens.
8. Misinformation based on so-called Internet "research" that is not supported by credible evidence will be deleted
Their members would benefit from following those same guidelines when proselytizing on other forums. Also, it appears it is Dave himself who is moderating the comments.
