Comments are fantastic and we strongly encourage you to comment whenever you have something to say.
Interaction and two-way conversation are what make things like blogs work well. Unfortunately there are a few people who want to use comments for disruptive purposes so we need to set down a few guidelines.
The "name" field is for your name - don't use it for your company name or SEO keywords. Please use a real name or a consistent nickname so we know who we're talking with.
Please put a valid email address in the "email" field. It will never be published, sold, or otherwise abused, but we may need to contact you about a specific comment occasionally. Having to use a real email address also helps us to stop spammers leaving comments.
Comments would never be deleted or censored just because you disagree with what's written in the article - respectful debate is half the fun! But there are some other common sense guidelines that you'll need to follow:
- Don't spam.
- Don't make personal attacks. Attacking an idea is fine ("Your idea is dumb because..."), just don't attack the person ("You are dumb!").
- Don't post anything that infringes somebody else's copyright or is illegal in some other way.
- Don't swear.
- Your comment must have at least some relevance to the post.
If your comment does not appear and does not fall into one of these categories please contact me.
