Comment Policy

We enjoy interacting with you and gladly welcome your comments. To ensure that comments enhance and not detract from the blog, we have created a formal comment policy. It is based upon, but not identical to, that of OptiNiche.com.

Comment Moderation

Comments, trackbacks, and pingbacks to Book of Trogool are not pre-moderated, but in order to maintain the integrity of the blog and its content, all are subject to deletion after posting. We are the sole judges of the appropriateness of comments, and our decisions are not subject to appeal. Arguing with us publicly or privately about a deleted comment will cause us to ban you from commenting and/or delete your email unread.

Language, Length, and Format

This blog invites a diverse audience with different sensibilities and opinions. Sexist, homophobic, racist, able-ist, and similar talk stemming from unconsidered privilege may be edited out of your comment; in extreme cases it will cause us to delete your comment and/or ban you from commenting further here. Please avoid harsh language and the use of profanity. Flaming, trolling, or use of threatening language will cause comments to be deleted and their posters banned; additional action may be taken at our discretion.

If an entry gets you fired up, or makes you think so deeply that the words pour from you like an overflowing fountain, please publish it as a thought on your own blog and trackback. If trackback is disabled on your blog, you are welcome to leave a comment summarizing your entry with a link to continue reading it. Harangues are subject to deletion, as are rapid-fire comments that dominate or monopolize conversation.

Ideally, your comment will be under 200 well-chosen words with paragraphs as necessary; whitespace makes the content easier to read on a computer screen.

Linking To Your Site and Others

Comments on Book of Trogool do not exist for you to promote yourself, your employer, your workplace, or your wares. Excessive and/or inappropriate links will be removed, as may the comment in which they appear.

You may, of course, leave a URL in the comment URL box. If the entire point of the comment appears to be leaving that URL, you are a spammer; your comment will be deleted and you will be banned.

E-mail Addresses

Please use a valid e-mail address when commenting on the blog. It will not be displayed unless you type it in the body of your comment, and you will not be subscribed to any mailing list by leaving a comment.

Editing Comments

We reserve the right to edit or delete comments as we feel necessary. We will make a note of all edits at the end of the comment. At no time will we attempt to alter the core meaning of a comment.

Final Words

You, and only you, are responsible for your words. They are yours; however, by posting your comments to Book of Trogool you are granting us a non-exclusive license, in perpetuity, to use, alter, and/or display them however we see fit.
