Who are you? What do you have to say? As any good blogger should be, I am always interested in what readers have to say about the content found on my blog. There has been a steady flow of people perusing my posts here (over 100 readers in a day, at times) and occasionally offering their own opinions, and by that I am flattered. However, a few of the more talkative (non-spam) readers out there have peppered their comments with some superfluous links and other things that have left me with no choice but to trash their comments, and so I have felt the need to create a policy for commenting.
- Your FIRST name.
- Notice the bold caps, of course. You do not have to tell me your full name in order to leave a comment. It is good — better, even — to leave just a first name or nickname, especially if it will make you feel more free to leave your opinion.
- Your comment
- I don’t think we have to explain this one.
That’s it. I don’t need, or really want anything else. I’m not going to contact you after your comment, asking if you want to receive automatic updates whenever a new language is being learned. I don’t really need your contact info.
Other Information could get your comment trashed or marked as spam.
- Your website.
- I would like to say that I want your link to your website. It would be great to get a list of other language-focused websites out there that people have used in their own personal language journeys. However, several apparent webmasters have come to my posts with the thinly veiled intention of leaving links to their own websites in the comments they post on my site.
- So, unless your website link is SPECIFICALLY RELATED TO LANGUAGE, don’t post it.
- Profanity, vulgarity, general nonsense, i tako dalje, i tako dalje.
- Though you have anonymity, my corner of the web is not a place for your trash.
And that’s it.
