Comments on this site are encouraged and valued. Please keep three things in mind:
1. Prefer Real Names, Avoid Keyword Names
Comments signed with names that try to please search engines will be removed. While links to organizations are usually respected, references to commercial websites should also be used with care. I’m a
nofollow opponent but this makes me pay extra attention to all links on this site.
2. Stay Polite and On-Topic
This should be a matter of course. Be polite, and focus on the matter of interest. Comments that are rude or off-topic may be removed. However, while everyone’s encouraged to actually contribute, trivial posts may well attract trivial comments.
3. The Right to Modify Comments Is Reserved
No worries: Apart from the situations above, this pretty much only applies when markup or website URLs need to be corrected (nobody enjoys broken links), or when eventually, an entire post is deleted.
Please note that I can’t send messages about comments to be modified or removed. I simply can’t because I intentionally avoid to ask for email addresses—I want to make commenting easy and unobtrusive. But while talking about all the cases in which I might edit comments: Feel free to drop me a line at any time in case you want your comments to be changed or removed.
