I welcome all comments and appreciate you taking the time to contribute. But there may be situations where comments will not be approved or might be edited. I consider blog conversations, including comments, to be like a civil conversation in a person’s home. If I am welcomed into someone’s home to join a discussion, I would make every attempt to be respectful of others, and would expect the same from them. That’s how I’ll treat comments. So with that in mind here are the basics:
- Please try to stay on topic as much as possible.
- Relevant links in comments are okay, irrelevant links are not. A link in a comment that’s not really relevant to the post will be removed.
- I will delete comments containing personal attacks, hate speech, excessive profanity, or other behavior that would be inappropriate in a civil conversation.
- And though it should go without saying, all spam will be deleted.
