Comment policy. All official and shit.
I’ve been putting off having to write a comment policy because, well, I have enough shit to do. I like to think people are mature enough to handle themselves. And we had a nice little community going for a while until a couple of especially irritating jackasses showed up. Hint: it’s not the atheists that are causing me agita.
Disrupting the thread, inciting flames & confusion. Friendly reminder: Don’t feed the trolls, people. You’re just making more work for me.
- Concern trolling
Pretending to believe in X just so you can argue against it.
Being repetitive, boring me to death.
Using multiple identities.
- Assuming I’m Jewish or Christian
If you’re going to comment without checking out FAQs or my deconversion story or seeing the big fat A for atheist in my sidebar, then you’re an asshat.
“God is merciful”, “God be with you,” prayers, etc. I get enough of that shit in the Quran, thankyouverymuch.
Telling anyone they’re going to hell. Again, the Quran covers this in depth. I don’t need to hear that bullshit in my comments.
- Going completely off-topic.
Talking about X when the post isn’t about X at all. I realize some threads naturally veer off course and that’s fine, but there are limits. This is not a BBS or an open forum.
Now I could go through and delete every one of these comments, but that takes time. Time I could spend reading and deciphering the Quran. Time I could be spending with my husband, dog & cat. Time I could be outside, away from the computer. It’s quicker, easier, and much less frustrating for me to just go ahead and not publish your comments.
So I’m making it official. Here’s my policy:
I am God. I don’t like you? I boot your ass out of my Eden.
Simple as that. Know what this blog is about and what it isn’t about, and stick to it. Oh, and cuss your fucking heart out. I don’t give a shit.
If you want to read some comment policies I think are fantastic and apply to this blog, check these out:
- The Apostate
- Atheist a Go-Go
- Atheist Revolution
- Barefoot Bum – He says it best: “Comments are moderated. I will publish only non-retarded comments.”
P.S. WordPress allows simple HTML tags in comments:
<b> – bold
<i> – italics
<blockquote> – to quote something
Links set themselves up; just paste the URL and you’re good to go.
Image tags haven’t worked for me. Silly WordPress! Treat them like links or else nothing will show up in the comment.
That’s it. Now lets get on with life, plz&thnx.
