Comment Policy

Subtitle: All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
(with apologies to Robert Fulghum)

Ok, I’ve never needed a comment policy over here, but I’ve gotten a couple of folks recently from a certain blog who have decided to share some not-so-nice things that I’ve promptly deleted.  So now there’s a policy.

Which basically boils down to, “don’t be a douchebag.”

Doucheyness (douchiness?) is pretty much at my discretion (because I’m drunk with power), but here are some examples:

If you:
call someone a name, your comment will not go through.
state explicitly or implicitly that someone is stupid for not thinking EXACTLY THE WAY YOU DO, your comment will not go through.
fat-bash, your comment will not go through.
skinny-bash, your comment will not go through.
body-bash in general, your comment will not go through.

Are you seeing a theme here?  Seriously, if you are going to comment, you must exhibit a maturity level greater than a preschooler.  Specifically, you must at least exhibit the maturity level of a kindergartener. 

I don’t think that’s too much to ask from (presumably) grown people.

That is all.

  1. I think the proper term is “douche-bag-ness”, or perhaps “douche-bag-itude”….

    Sorry to hear you’ve been getting douche-bag-itude (DBI) in your comment section!

    Hope your comment policy helps.

  2. LOL, I know, right? I’m not really sure the policy will help, but at least it will give me a place to point people to when they’re rude and then come back complaining because I didn’t approve their comment.

  3. Douchbagarrhea.

  4. HA! POD, I love that – it’s hilarious. 🙂

  5. wow. i’ll do my best to comply

  6. LOL, I’m not at all worried, Emily. 🙂 This was primarily directed at a couple of specific people who never made it past the moderation queue.
