Rules for comments

Feedback and discussion is welcome but it has become necessary to set down some guidelines on how comments will be handled. My objective is for this site to be a place for open discussion about the technology issues on which I blog but please remember:

  • Keep it on topic.
  • Keep it respectful.
  • Keep it fun.
  • I can’t offer support to everybody on the Internet and although I’ll help if I can, I have a day job too!

Things that will lead to comments being edited/deleted include:

  • Offensive or abusive language or behaviour (if you feel that your point requires the use of strong language, you may use asterisks to mask your f***ing language, but no flaming – personal attacks against me, my family, my friends, or other commenters are forbidden).
  • Misrepresentation (i.e. claiming to be somebody you’re not) – if you don’t want to use your real name, that’s fine, as long as your “handle” isn’t offensive, abusive, or misrepresentative.
  • Anything illegal.
  • Blog-spam of any kind (even if your comment is relevant, I reserve the right to remove any link to your site if I consider it to be blog spam).

I hope these rules will keep the discussion lively and on topic.

Finally, please note that comments are owned by the person who posted them and I am not responsible for their content. In addition, if you leave a comment for search engine optimisation (SEO) purposes and then later decide it should be removed, I reserve the right to charge for my time, removing such links only after payment has been received.
