Rather than having nothing, I find it’s better it’s to have something. So here’s a comment policy.
- Don’t be an asshole. That’s right, I’m gonna say it clearly. Name calling, personal attacks, insinuations of less-than-stellar character, etc. If the whole of your comment is “durr, why are we talking about this?” and nothing else, then — boom — you’re an asshole.
- Management reserves the right to edit comments at will, to say anything. If you violate Rule #1, welcome to Rule #2, where I stick words in your mouth.
- Comments should be about the post topic. Now, maybe you may be having a really beautiful discussion of the finer points of a tangent you’ve gone off on, in which case, we’ll let it fly. But if you just want to spout off on your pet peeve of the day, then sayonara.
- Comments should be understandable. Gibberish, obfuscating poetry, and other weirdness are a no-go. Puns are fine.
