This is a public blog. Any comments you leave here can be seen and read by others. If there’s something you want to say and keep private, do not leave it in the comment section. With that said, I love comments and want to hear all that you’re willing to share.
This is also my blog. So if a comment is offensive or problematic, it’s my policy to remove that comment at my discretion. On the reverse side of things, if I love a comment you post here, I reserve the right to reference that comment in my blog posts. If I can learn something useful and informational from you, I like to pass that info along to my other readers.
So here are the simple rules of engagement on Extreme Ancestry:
As Grandma used to say – “Be nice”. While I realize that there may be times people feel passionately about something I post and want to voice their opinion, there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed. Comments that are abusive, threatening, menacing or rude get removed by me – immediately.
Don’t spam. I detest it. Didn’t like it when my mom served it out of the can and I like it even less on my blog.
Like many bloggers I have a plug-in that catches 99% of spam headed this way (or at least so they claim). But every now and then, spam can sneak through and blast me with comments in order to plant links here.
When I get that kind of spam, I disable the links and leave the comment in tact (as long as it follows Rule #1). If the spam continues, I block that person’s IP address.
Other than these two rules, I welcome all questions and feedback and invite you to comment as often as you want and to interact with other readers as well. You can also share your comments via social media.
Thanks for being a reader of Extreme Ancestry – and that special someone who takes time to leave a comment.
