To prevent nasty spam comments from showing up, all comments will be held for moderation except those from people with a previously-approved comment.
I’ve set up a list of blacklisted words from the words that show up the most in spam. Any comment with one of those words will vanish into nothingness. (Which means less spam for me to delete.)
Don’t worry if your post doesn’t get through right away. Unless it got caught by the blacklist, I’ll review everything and let all false alarms through.
I can edit or delete comments. (When I edit, I’ll make it obvious.) Here’s the obligatory list of inappropriate comment types:
There are people who get insulted when others swear, and there are people who get insulted when told not to swear. I can only please one group, and it was pretty easy to choose which one.
I’m fine with constructive criticism when appropriate, but not from angry people with chips on their shoulder.
-Religion, Sex, and Politics
Let’s observe the hornet’s nest from a distance, okay?
I’m fine with relevant links, even to pet projects and personal businesses, but if there’s no reasonable context, it’s spam.
I won’t be very strict on this, but if we’re talking about Star Wars, I’m going to delete a comment about someone’s upcoming root canal.
If something clearly doesn’t belong in the discussion, I’ll probably remove it.
When you enter your email address, it’s only to get notifications when people reply and to prove you’re not a spammer. I promise that I’m not a spammer either. You won’t get any emails you don’t expect as a result of posting on Sorceress Council.
