For the first time in years, I'm going to re-add commenting back into my blog. I disabled it originally in WordPress since the spam got so horrible that I couldn't keep up with it anymore.

The following is adapted from Disqus' sample guidelines.

Keep it civil

If you disagree with something I say or have an opposing viewpoint or you feel I've made a mistake somewhere, I definitely encourage your feedback and value your opinion. I love those sort of comments as long as you're professional about it.

No Self-promotion

A discussion or comment that contains only a link to your blog, a product, or your article on another site will almost always be removed.

Choose Your (Curse) Words Wisely

I try to keep my blog family friendly so comments with excessive swearing will be removed. Profanity used to insult, antagonize, or inflame will always be removed.

Don’t Copy and Paste

If you didn’t write it, or haven’t properly cited the article you’re quoting, don’t post it.

English Only

I prefer if all comments are in English for the sake of other people reading this site.
