I don't have a lot of space to play with in discussing this policy in the comments section so that policy will be outlined here.
- Negative comments will either be deleted/or rejected in moderation
- Vulgar/profane comments will also be deleted or rejected
- Spam will be deleted or rejected
- Comments that take a post off-topic will be deleted or rejected
- Personal attacks will be greatly discouraged. By attacks I mean an ad hominem for example.
As of March 4, 2013 comment moderation is enable and comments must be approved before they are published. Posts made within those five days will be un-moderated but the previous five rules will apply. In addition comments that violate the rules will be deleted in accordance to these rules.
As stated already moderating policy is subject to change. That also means that at some point in time these rules can be expanded or we can return to a system where comments will just be posted when the commenter clicks on post comment.
ON ANONYMOUS COMMENTS
Basically I want to discourage anonymous comments however they are not prohibited here. I could just easily decide that anyone who comments here must have an account at Google or with Open ID, AOL Instant Messenger, TypePad, Live Journal to name a few well-known services out there to leave a comment. On the other hand that would leave out those of you who are without an account with those services.
Like I said, identify yourself as you would see fit with your real name, nickname or whatever creative name you come up with. Either way another box will pop-up and this box should say "Edit profile". Fill in the necessary information and don't worry about a URL if you don't have one (if you have a website remember to add http:// if you wish to add a link to it).
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, but before you decide to make comments please refer to the moderating policy above. And once again thank you for your comments.
The purpose is to better identify those who choose to read and leave a comment. I want to account for those who do not have accounts to be able to offer their comments. Hopefully these instructions helped.
Thanks for reading and discussing as always!
