If you want your comment published (and if you comment, then I assume you do), there are only a very few things you need to do to succeed. Don’t muck up my comments with your dishonest tactics:
- Leave a real email address. You can reach me in numerous ways. I don’t blog or comment anonymously. Please demonstrate enough spine to offer me the same courtesy.
- Use valid arguments, not ad hominem. I just don’t have time to defend myself from that crap. I’m raising children over here. If you want to talk about me, rather than what I’m saying, use your own space to do so.
- Don’t use multiple aliases. I don’t mind if you change your name every now and then, but when it’s the same person saying the same thing all the time under different names, I do catch on.
You could read my comments policy, but if you have no time for it, this short list will probably be enough to prevent you from ending up like those who have already been banned for these annoyances. Good grief.
