I enjoy comment and discussion and welcome it on my website. However, I see allowing comments on my website as the internet equivalent of inviting you into my home, so there are a few guidelines so people know where they stand. These guidelines will probably vary from time to time as I get to know better what to expect. Please check them out every now and then.
First time commenters need to be approved, and this can take a while due to the limitations in my physical capacity so please be patient. After your first comment, approval is automatic unless or until you abuse the guidelines.
Using a fake e-mail address is fine, but it may mean your comments get stuck in moderation, even if I have approved you as a commenter.
Comments I find offensive will either not be approved, or removed as soon as I find them. My decision is final and I will not enter into an argument about whether or not it’s fair or reasonable.
It’s no-one’s right to be allowed to comment, and permission can be withdrawn at any time. And remember – insulting the host is the quickest way to get kicked out.
Don’t get personal – arguing about ideas is fine; getting nasty isn’t.
Those who attempt to use the comments to sell products or services will be permanently barred.
Remember: A claim made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
Banned Words and Terms
As of today (7 February 2018), I’ve decided to ban a few words, terms, and phrases just because. I’ve been going since August 2014, so I think I’ve done pretty well not to do this so far.
I’m not going to mention words that no one has ever used here. There are words I don’t want to see, but I’m not going to mention them unless I get a commenter ignorant enough to start using them.
Any comment including any of the words or terms below will be deleted as soon as I see it.
There’s only one thing banned at this point because it’s been used a lot, it annoys me, and I consider it ignorant:
