Hi Luca,

Good idea to allow (and communicate) edited blog posts.

Communicating a comment policy is fine, but I wouldn't demand anyone  
to work on removing the noise. Our coder blog probably attracts a  
different audience anyway. In case the commenting becomes annoying we  
can review ideas for how to fix that though.
