No Comments

We hesitate say much more than Kathy and Dan at Creating Passionate Users did about comments:

We LOVE to hear from you, and we think of this blog as a big dinner party. Y’all are our invited guests, but if you’re being rude and obnoxious we’ll let the bouncer toss you. So please, stick to debating and criticizing ideas rather than personal attacks. Also, if you don’t see your comment right away, it means we’ve turned on moderation to fight the evil spammers. It’ll show up soon.

But here are some specifics about this dinner party:

  • Intolerance
    Actions that marginalize, belittle, or defame individuals or groups inhibit the satisfying exchange of ideas and diminish the Scriblio community as whole. The use of derogatory or demeaning language or images in reference to another person’s race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation is never allowed and shouldn’t be necessary to interact with this site anyhow.
  • Harassment
    Communicating or behaving in a manner which is offensively coarse, intimidating or threatening, constitutes unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, or is otherwise likely to cause annoyance or alarm is Harassment. Don’t harass. Thanks.
  • Spam
    Comments must be relevant to the page they appear on and contribute meaningfully to the community. Automatic filtering mechanisms are used to block spam; messages that have the appearance of spam will be deleted at the discretion of the site administrators.

In short: comments should show a courteous regard for the presence of other voices in the discussion. We reserve the right to edit or delete comments that do not adhere to this standard. If you have questions or a problem with this, feel free to contact us.
