comment policy

Filed under: musings — freeformkatia @ 8:07 am

Hi all — I don’t get a lot of comments on my blog, and that’s fine. But, just to make it clear, I do moderate the comments.

This hasn’t come up before, but I received a comment yesterday from Anonymous, and it was unsigned (these are two separate things, you can post as Anonymous and still sign your comment). It was in regard to my Geno’s post. It was not an offensive comment — but, I am not going to post it because it is unsigned.

So, my policy is thus:

1. family-friendly comments only (no swearing, cursing, personal attacks, etc. and no porn (duh))
2. comments must be signed and have a valid email/blog address attached to them — if the comment is unsigned/anonymous I will not publish it

If you were the author of the comment, send me your name and I will publish it.

In response: yes, it is his first amendment right. But I also have the right to say it’s wrong. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion.




  1. It looks like the Geno’s people added parentheses to their sign (This is America – please “speak English”). I hate that. What the hell does it mean, besides poor written English skills? I’d like to set some Parisian waiters on the sign maker, who I am guessing would not bother to learn French should he set aside his xenophobia to travel outside of the US. Hey – do I get to do a little grandfathered discrimination against Geno’s owner because my ancestors, unlike his, spoke English when their boat landed?
