+ Be careful not to create cyclic imports in your custom comments app.
+ If you feel your comment configuration isn't being used as defined --
+ for example, if your comment moderation policy isn't being applied --
+ you may have a cyclic import problem.
+ If you are having unexplained problems with comments behavior, check
+ if your custom comments application imports (even indirectly)
+ any module that itself imports Django's comments module.
The above process should take care of most common situations. For more
advanced usage, there are additional methods you can define. Those are
explained in the next section.
