Each person who comments at Get Along Home is responsible for his or her own conduct. I have a pretty open comment policy. If you say it, you own it. I am not responsible for the words of any other person on this blog. That means you have to be pretty obnoxious to get banned here. If you’d like to have your comments deleted or your IP banned, do the following things:
- Say something bad about my children.
- Threaten me, or any guest blogger, or any other commenter.
- Post a comment so off-topic or so silly that it is obvious that you either can’t or won’t read the post.
- Leave a fake email address.
- Comment on my attitude/choice of words/writing/personality. I won’t tolerate that. Here’s why.
You won’t be deleted for disagreeing with me. I might even allow you to call me puddin’-head from time to time. I don’t have to be so generous, so don’t abuse the privilege.
I do reserve the right to quote any comment left on this blog and use it in any way I see fit. I also reserve the right to arbitrarily and capriciously ban or delete comments without notice, and for reasons not outlined here.
I will not alter comments unless the commenter asks me to, and then only if it doesn’t interfere with the rest of the conversation. I’ll fix your typos, but I won’t change what you’ve said. You’ll have to do that for yourself in another comment.
You may say what you like, but please know that I will throw you under the bus at the first opportunity if someone tries to blame me or a guest blogger for the words of a commenter. I am not your mother, either. I did not raise you. You’re not my problem. Clear enough? Good. Now Get Along H0me to the front page and leave a comment or two.
