+ 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
