***Comment Policy*** (Updated 9-30-09)

Well after a bit over a year of blogging I suppose its time I made up a comment policy. Nothing really serious and big but I'd rather start laying the law down now before things get out of hand later.

1. Please use a nickname - The comments aren't exactly coming in hand over fist but I'd like to not end up with myself and other posters confused by a bunch of "Guest" (aka Anonymous Cowards) nicknames posting here. So if you don't mind when commenting please add a nickname. I know that if you post through the commenting software I use,JS Kit, there is space for a nickname but even if you don't add one there try to at least add one at the end of your post.

2. Rating Comments - I've recently added a rating system to my posts so I can have an idea of what people think of my corner here. Then I realized that simply rating a post 1-5 stars isn't that great a way at getting actual feedback. So to remedy that I ask that if you are going to rate the post then please leave a comment explaining your rating. Maybe I missed a perspective, maybe I inaccurately represented s perspective, maybe you totally disagreed with what I said. You don't have to agree with me, you don't have to life me, I just want to hear what you have to say.

3. I understand that it can be easy to get heated up while talking things out especially when dealing with those you may not agree with but it is important to maintain a civil atmosphere.

That is all for now but keep and eye on this as I'm sure I will be editing it as time passes.
