One Project Closer Comment Policy
Posted By Fred On August 31, 2009 @ 1:00 pm In NotIndexed | 1 Comment
Well, we’re 700+ posts into this website (can you believe it?!?) and we think it’s about time we finally implemented a comment policy. Why now? Well, in the recent past many of our posts have become the target of comment spammers… and we’re tired of it. Will a simple policy fix it? Probably not totally, but we hope folks will take it seriously. So here goes!
First… We love most comments! What’s a good comment? It’s one that adds to the conversation, or just says something nice about what we’ve written. It’s even those comments that challenge what we write, or disagree with us altogether. 80% of all the comments we get are these type of comments…
So what’s a bad comment? Well, that’s easy too:
If you’re leaving a comments like this, you know who you are… but we’ll give you some specifics:
There are a few grey areas that are pretty standard in the blogging world that are OK. Here’s one: let’s say you run the blog Designs by Jane, and your name is Jane. It’s fine to use a name like Jane @ Designs by Jane. Now, if you’re trying to push picture frames on your blog, and intead of using Jane @ Designs by Jane, you use Jane @ Cool Picture Frames, that wouldn’t be OK, because Cool Picture Frames isn’t the name of your blog.
So that’s pretty simple right? We thought so…
