Comment Policy

Overview:

I want this blog to start conversations. Sometimes those conversations will begin with a reader wholeheartedly disagreeing with me. That is totally fine; I’m open to discussion, and always willing to consider that I may be wrong, my opinion not well-thought-through enough, or that I may have completely missed a crucial part of an argument.

So whether you agree, disagree, or aren’t sure, please comment! (And make sure you remember your netiquette!)

In detail:

Comment Form Guidelines: I understand that sometimes this blog discusses topics of a sensitive nature, so if you’re more comfortable commenting anonymously, that’s cool. I’d rather have people contribute to the conversation than remain silent because they’re afraid of judgment. However, if anonymity is abused, your comments will be deleted.

Language and Manners: Be reasonable and respectful. Depending on the situation, commenters who are unreasonable and/or disrespectful may be warned, deleted, or banned. Swearing is fine. Excessive or abusive swearing is not.

Comments are Conversation: A comment which does not add to the conversation, runs off on an inappropriate tangent, is designed to incite or inflame, or kills the conversation may be edited, moved, or deleted. (Depending on my impression of the comment, I may issue a warning first).

What To Do If Your Comment Does Not Appear: If you leave a comment on this blog and it does not appear in a reasonable time period (usually 24 hours), and you know that it does not violate these Comment Policies, contact the blogger through the “About” page.

No Personal Attacks Permitted: No personal attacks are permitted in this blog’s comments. You may question or argue the content but not attack the blogger or other commenters. Failure to respect fellow participants on this blog will result in deleted comments, warnings, and/or blocking.

Comment Spam: Any comment assumed to be comment spam will be deleted and marked as comment spam.

Commenters Blocked: Anyone who violates this Comments Policy may be blocked from future access and/or commenting on this blog.

All Rights Reserved: The blog owner, administrator, contributor, editor, and/or author reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. They also have the right to block access to any one or group from commenting or from the entire blog.

Hold Harmless: All comments within this blog are the responsibility of the commenter, not the blog owner, administrator, contributor, editor, or author. By submitting a comment on our blog, you agree that the comment content is your own, and to hold this site, its owner, and all subsidiaries and representatives harmless from any and all repercussions, damages, or liability.

Trackbacks Are Comments: All trackbacks will be treated inline with our Comments Policy.
