Rules for Blog Comments

Quick synopsis:

  1. I reserve the right to edit your comments if they contain foul language.
  2. I welcome all comments and all types of comments.
  3. You may use a pseudo-name so your “real name” isn’t publicly visible.
  4. But you must use your real email address so I can follow-up with you.
  5. You are welcome to use my contact form to send me comments that will not be published on my blog.
  6. Anonymous comments with invalid email addresses will be deleted.

    Whatever. I’m too cowardly to actually put my real name on a comment. I like to just attack others from a distance without taking responsibility for my dogmatic and prideful opinions that make Christians look like jerks.

    Adam, I think this is a great rule. I HATE anonymous comments, although I find that I usually am able to figure out who the “anonymous” comments on MY blog are from–they aren’t strangers across the country, but people I actually know who want to throw in their own two cents about stuff without taking any responsibility for it. For me it isn’t a problem, but it’s totally lame.

      That’s a great point. I worked at a church where the SP commented negatively all the time under an assumed name. I knew it was him the whole time because the IP tracked to either the church or his house. So lame.

      I don’t mind people using fake names, just give me an email address I can follow-up with, if needed.

      Otherwise, those comments are just trolls.
