Currently, this blog is set up so that anyone can write a comment. I am using Akismet to filter spam comments and remove them automatically.
• Comments are welcome from all political and religious viewpoints. •
Please be respectful of others’ views.
For example, one of my long-time readers is a Christian and political conservative, while another is a left-wing atheist. Both are welcome to comment with their views, and even to question the other person’s views (and mine).
• Personal attacks are not allowed. •
This includes harassment and name-calling.
Non-personal attack: “This guy I know is a jerk.” (This is okay)
Personal attack: “Frank P. Frankenjerker is a jerk.” (This is not okay)
See the difference? It’s one thing to talk about an anonymous person; quite another to identify them specifically.
• Comments should stay relatively close to the topic of each blog entry. •
Tangents are allowed, as are links to related articles, blog entries, or photos.
• Do not use a link-shortening service •
Relevant links (URLs) are allowed in the comments, but any URLs generated by a link-shortening service such as bitly or TinyURL will not be accepted.
• ‘LOLspeak’ is not allowed. •
This isn’t a social networking site or a text message. At least attempt to use complete sentences and standardized spelling and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for all of us to understand.
(If English isn’t your primary language, that’s fine! Please type in your own language and I’ll use a translator to read it.)
