My wish is that TheHeartOfHannah.com will stimulate a dialogue centered around New Testament Christianity. For that reason, comments – both positive and negative – are encouraged. However, I need to set some ground rules, otherwise some conversations might turn into ‘shouting matches’ and disenchant other readers and commenters.
By commenting on my blog, you are agreeing to my comments policy:
1. Be a gentleman/gentlewoman. If you disagree with something I or someone else said, disagree without being disagreeable. Call me old fashioned, but I really do expect you to be polite.
2. Don’t be snarky. Please avoid being rude or employing non-friendly sarcasm. If your tone is downright ugly, it won’t be approved (unless your comment makes you look silly or nullifies your point, then I may go ahead and approve it).
3. Don’t be dirty. Vulgarity, even a hint, won’t stand a chance of being approved.
4. Stay on topic. If it isn’t relevant, it won’t be posted.
5. Keep it under 250 words (I once received a 2000+ comment; there’s no way I can post something that long). As a general rule, comments should be shorter than the article itself. If your comment is over 250 words, I will use my discretion on whether or not it will be published.
6. You assume responsibility for your words. I am not liable for any negative ramifications or emotional harm you may cause.
7. By commenting, you grant me license to use, store, print, repost, distribute, or reproduce whatever you post. I may use what you say in – but no limited to – a book, a magazine article, a blog post, or a sermon presentation. Don’t say anything you don’t want the world to see.
8. Don’t spam me. If you’re a bot, you’re going straight to my ‘spam’ folder.
9. This is my blog. At the end of the day, I reserve the right to moderate the conversation. If I don’t want to approve your comment, I don’t have to.
