Welcome to my home on the Internet of everything “relationship”. Everyone who visits here is welcome to post, but please treat your visit like you would a visit to a private home or office. Most people wouldn’t be rude, loud, or insulting in somebody’s home or office, I ask for the same level of civility and courtesy here. That being said I do have a few rules that I will enforce to keep the dialog respectful and stimulating:
No vulgarities of any kind, nor links to sites that promote such. Particularly porn or gaming sites.
- No links to commercial websites that are not relevant to the discussion.
Respect is given to those with manners, those without manners that insult others or begin starting flame wars may find their posts deleted.
Some off topic comments may get deleted, don’t take it personally, it happens. Commenters that routinely lead threads astray in areas that are not relevant or are of personal interest only to their posts deleted.
A spam filter is employed; some posts may disappear into it based on words, phrases, and/or links. If you feel you have been accidentally blocked, try posting a single one or two sentence comment to alert me and I’ll see if I can recover it for you.
Trolls, flame-bait, personal attacks, thread-jacking, name-calling such as “denialist,” “denier,” and other detritus that add nothing to further the discussion may get deleted; also posts repeatedly linking to a particular blog, or attempting to dominate a thread by excessive postings may get deleted. Take that personally if you wish, but all deletions/snips are final. Grousing about it won’t help since deleted posts can’t be recovered. Rather than trying to edit, bulk moderation may be employed to save time.
Internet phantoms who have cryptic handles, no name, and no real email address get no respect here. If you think your opinion or idea is important, elevate your status by being open and honest. People that use their real name get more respect than phantoms with handles. I encourage open discussion.
- A real working email address that you own (as a commenter) is required, so that I may contact you if needed. False or misleading email addresses may earn banishment. Changing handles and/or changing email addresses to get around this will also earn the same fate.
You are responsible for your own words.
- The idea of the blog is to learn, discuss, and enjoy the interaction. Please try to keep that in mind when making comments.
- Guest authors and moderators are expected to adhere to this policy
I reserve the right to modify the policy as needed, including on an event basis.
Thanks for visiting, and please enjoy your stay!
