Comment Policy: No Trolls, No Solicitations, No Advertisers
Though my blog is obviously publicly accessible and readable by anybody, this is still my blog and I own the content, including what is posted in the comments. I strive to maintain a fairly light, friendly, and family-appropriate tone. Comments are welcome and encouraged, even comments which may disagree with me. But, comments must be clean, polite, on-topic, and respectful. I prefer not to have a blog which contains aggressive, impolite or insulting remarks (from anybody, towards anybody); as these are not enjoyable for the audience to read, and spoil the overall tone of the site.
Consider this space the same as my living room. If you were invited to a dinner party at my house, and you made disrespectful, inappropriate or inflammatory comments in the company of my guests, you would definitely not make it onto future invite lists. So, before making a comment, just give it this test: would this be something you would feel comfortable saying at my dinner table in front of other polite guests? Would the other guests feel comfortable with what you just said? If not, most likely, your comment will end up lost in the spam folder. And for repeat offenders of troll-like behavior, your bio will be put on the blocked list, and you will find all your comments lost in the spam folder, and I will never even see them.
Spam, solicitations and blatant advertising are also not allowed in the comments. It’s encouraged to link back to your own blog or site in your identification, or cite links to reference relevant content. But obvious attempts to use the comment section to promote businesses, websites, or other agendas will also land in the spam folder.
First-time commentators are moderated, your post will appear after I approve it. Once one of your comments has been approved, all others will be approved automatically if you use the same identification credentials for future comments. Occasionally, a “good” comment can get caught in the automated spam filter of the platform, and I won’t notice. If you think this has happened to you, feel free to email me to inquire about it.
The blog owner reserves the right to edit, moderate or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice. This comment policy is subject to change at anytime.
