New comment policies

Posted 3 March 2007 in censorship, comment, and policy

I've made a decision to change some policies about my blog. Previously, if I knew it wasn't a spammer, I would generally allow a comment through no matter how offensive it might be. However, I think I want to change that, because I want my website to be appropriate for all ages.

I have not yet written any specific guidelines for commenting, but for right now the guidelines are:

  1. No cursing or other purposefully offensive language
  2. Be respectful of others

And of course the greatest of these is "Be respectful of others". All of the others follow therefrom.
