My rules for commenting are simple.
If you’re like 99.9% of the population, you don’t even need to read them (cos you’re awesome like that). So this is meant for the special 0.1%.
- It’s really easy for my spam filter to catch and delete spammy comments. And the few that manage to sneak past the spam filter get deleted pretty quickly, usually in <24 hours. Spammers also get automatically banned.
- All comments with URLs are treated as spam.
I received too many comments that abuse links that I simply cannot review them all myself anymore. If you genuinely want to add a link, you still can, just don’t make it clickable. Use www (dot) whateveritscalled (dot) com. But I’ll still review it, as it’s my experience that most genuine users here simply don’t link out.
This site is no longer do-follow.
- Since I’ve been getting too many spammy and drive-by comments with keywords and URLs, I’ve decided to turn off this function.
- We all need each other in this world, so let’s treat one another with love and respect.
Negative/attacking/hateful comments hold no value to anyone (except the originator’s ego!), and I will happily trash them. Like any loving homeowner would say to her cherished guests when they misbehave—not in my house, you don’t.
