Guidelines for Comments

The first few are from my "other" blog, According to Coop, which deals with political stories, national news, local news, and other stuff that just doesn't fit here. Much like While Rome Burns, it's mostly just a sounding board for me that I have opened up to the Internet. Anyway...

As I seem to be having more folks showing up and commenting here at While Rome Burns, I thought it was a good time to set down some ground rules for commenting on this blog. More guidelines than rules, but if you are going to comment here, I ask that you abide by them.

1. Keep it clean. You don't need to use bad language to make your point.

2. Keep it friendly. If you wouldn't say what you're about to say to someone's face, don't say it on this blog.

3. Keep it respectful. People of all backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions are welcome here. You can disagree with someone and that's fine, but don't insult them because they don't agree with you.

4. Keep it concise. Please don't write novels in the comment section. If you have that much to say, you can start your own blog right here on Blogger for free.

5. Please check your spelling. I don't expect you to be able to win the national spelling bee, but please take a moment to make sure everything is spelled correctly. It makes it a lot easier to understand just what it is you are trying to say.

6. Keep it on topic. If your comment covers the content of two posts, please split it into two comments. That way, the discussion all stays in the same place, and everyone can follow along easily. And please don't drag something completely unrelated into the discussion (for example; don't drag Islam into a discussion about Rick Warren).

This is not in any way meant to be exhaustive, and this list may change in the future. If it does, I will let you know. Until then, please abide by these guidelines.
