(Updated 12/9/09)Comment Policy
This forum has an unrestricted posting system at the moment, but the following types of comments may be deleted after review:
- Comments on a thread for rejected comments that were not initially deleted or rejected at the source in question and are not in response to a discussion that's arisen in response to such a comment
- Off-topic comments
- Abusive or offensive comments
- Spam (of course)
Aside from the hard rules above, the tone we're shooting for here is one of thoughtfulness, substantiveness, and a due amount of respect. Comments will not be judged on the stance they take on any issue, and the fact a comment on this forum has not been deleted in no way means it reflects the administrator's own opinions.
I'm hoping that this will be enough to keep this place running smoothly enough and working towards the goals stated in "About this Blog".
To the first visitor to submit a comment to one of the off-site-related posts:
With apologies, thanks for your visit, and I hope you stick around. I very much appreciated your honesty, and hope everyone holds to the same level in the future here, but if you're going to open a discussion in a thread for rejected comments, please don't open it up with "I'm not even going to try to post this at..." ;-)
(Anyone with thoughts on how to improve the comments policy is encouraged to share them in the comments here. Cheers!)
