A few things that I think should be mentioned publicly so I can point people here if needed.
All first-time commenters are moderated.
This prevents me from being repeatedly told how to make my penis larger and buy prescription medication on the cheap from shady people who type with characters that don’t show up properly in wordpress. If you’re a first time commenter, do not fear! I am aware of your comments, and will almost certainly approve them in as timely a manner as I can manage. (I do, however, sleep. So if you make a comment at an off hour – I’m on US-Central time – it might sit in the queue until I get up the next day.)
Regardless of moderation, I highly encourage discussion in comments. This includes comments that disagree with what I have to say (if you’re a first time poster, see above. I will unflag your comment, I just need to get to it).
My willingness to hold discussion – even heated discussion – does not include the following:
- Name calling
- Personal attacks
- Any and all comments about gear/progression
- Leet speek and chatspeak
- General Asshattery
Violations of this will, depending on the severity, get you a warning, cause me to disemvowel all or part of your comment(s), or get your comment(s) deleted. Repeated and particularly flagrant violators will be banned.
Whether you can comment here is ultimately at my discretion – and plaintive, angry, or accusatory wailing about free speech will be met with yawning indifference. This isn’t a public square. This is my blog, my digital living room, if you will. I’m fine with (and encourage) discussion; I’ll even bring cookies and join in. I’m not fine with attacks on other commenters in particular, and repeated attacks on me get pretty old too.
In the end, follow the rule of DBAD, and you should be fine.
Now, let’s get back to talking about roleplay, shall we?
