Comment Policy

To avoid the “to spam or not to spam” quandary when dealing with certain comments my blog posts receive, I’m laying out a comment policy in plain English.

  1. Use your real name. (Don’t like your real name? Use your handle, like the one you use on Twitter.) Don’t use my comments section to get keyword-rich text linking back to your site. Take a blogging tip, and put both your name AND your site name in the name fieldĀ – I have no problem with that.
  2. Don’t leave a generic comment that doesn’t discuss the topic of the post you’re commenting on. Generic = spam, and I’m not ignorant. Fool me once, shame on you… I’m not getting fooled twice. Comment on what I’ve said in the post, or your comment will get spammed.
  3. Leave all bigotry and hateful comments at the door.
