With the recent set of spam commenters out there I think it’s time to put in some commenting guidelines.
1. Keep swearing to a minimum. I’m lifting the no-swearing ban, but that doesn’t mean you can turn into Richard Pryor.
2. No spamming or posting dirty links. I think this is clear. You can post a link to your own blog but if I see anything about Viagra on there then out it goes. Any links to porn will be heavily reviewed removed upon sight and you will be banned from commenting for life.
3. Don’t be a troll. While trolling is rare on this site, you can’t troll and you can’t start a fight. Constructive criticism of this blog is welcome, or criticism of another person’s opinion. If you give me a “you’re retarded” comment then it’s trolling, because it will be removed.
NEW AS OF 10/25/2009: PLEASE stop posting comments on posts that are over 2 years old. So I said the New York Giants would have a bad season, don’t post it there. It’s trolling and I’m tired of that.
4.) NO POLITICS. Do not turn any posts I write into a political discussion. (NEW AS OF 10/27/2009)
5.) NO RELIGIOUS DISCUSSION. Religion is a private matter to me and it shall be dealt as such. I will not post anything in regards to this subject so with that in mind do not even bring religion up in any of the comment threads. If you openly bash another religion (I don’t care which one) you’ll be banned so quickly your head will spin.
6.) DO NOT TYPE YOUR COMMENTS IN ALL CAPS AS IF YOU’RE TRYING TO YELL YOUR POINT TO ME! I’m not going to tolerate this.
That’s all you need to know! Now here’s some info about your commenting:
1.) Your IP address. Every time you comment your IP address is available to me. Please note I do not use, sell, or give away this information to anyone, and most of the time I forget the number anyway.
2.) I reserve the right to edit your comment at any time. This is just a reminder, but this is mainly used to clean up spelling mistakes and the occasional f-bomb that drops. If you do feel like trolling then I’ll not only edit your comment but publicly humiliate you. It may seem unfair but you’re the one who came here to troll.
Any questions can be left in the comments section of this page…….or if you want to test out the rules. ;-)
