Rules on commenting that I like

by Paul Alan Levy

The following was noted on the site of someone who posted comments on my article about Patrick Henry College: 

Comments: As the Doorbell Queen, I’d like to welcome all commenters.

Here are a few rules:

  • Anonymity: I allow anonymous commenting because I have friends in
    the interwebs who’d rather not be tracked from site to site. If you want
    to comment anonymously, that is fine with the following limitations: be
    kind; be respectful; no spam; use a screen name; and, when possible, shoot me a private e-mail letting me know who you are. Thanks.
  • Spam: I don’t allow it. Spam gets deleted. If I want to sell
    something, I will sell it. If you want to sell something, get your own
  • Mean-spiritedness / bullying / disrespect: Deleted. That is all.

 So, welcome! I hope that you will come often and comment freely within these simple rules. Thanks so much

I myself tend to excise the URL's of commenters who say little or nothing of substance but are careful to link to their own blogs.  But, I make an exception in this case
