For my own benefit, I’m going to define the rules a little differently than on the IE Blog, or than my previous blog.
- No obscenities.
- Don’t be a dick. I get to violate this one if I feel like it, though I shouldn’t; but then, it’s my blog.
- If you want to make snide comments about Microsoft, I invite you to do them on your blog. If you’d like to offer constructive criticism – say, about how we can all move the web forward, and what different action you’d want from Microsoft to make that happen – I’d love to hear it. If you just want to bitch, or your post falls into the category of “personal abuse,” I will delete it.
- If you’re obviously just trolling past – say, if you enter an obviously fake email address with a snide comment – I will probably delete your comments. I look at this pretty much every day; I don’t need that.
That’s it. I don’t expect commenters to be Microsoft fans; I do expect you all to be civil and have good intentions of making the web better. So far I’ve only deleted one comment – I feel pretty good about that.
