Stipulations for Blog Comments (READ)

Any initial violation of the following will result in a deletion of the comment and a warning.  You’ll have one chance to correct the error before being blocked permanently.

1) Absolutely no obscene, sexual, racial, or blasphemous language.

2) No ad hominem.  For those who don’t know what that is: It is any statement directed at a person, attacking either their character or their background.  The purpose of this is to keep debate on point, attacking the argument, not the person.

3) No trolling.  Inflammatory and emotive language is usually categorized here.  This includes anyone who comes onto the message board solely to cause disruption in the discussion.  Please refrain from interjecting statements with no relevance.

4) Moderate levels of sarcasm will be tolerated, as I am often guilty.  Just tone it down and don’t violate the first 3 points, and there won’t be any problems.

5) Please use wise judgment when commenting.  I reserve the right to block anyone, even if their violation is not  explicitly mentioned above.  Keep it clean, civil, and courteous.  It’s pretty simple…

6) I have restricted comments on a given post to 175 days.  This way I can better remember what is being commented on, rather than trying to reread old posts (some that can be very long).  If you have a specific question/objection…put it at the end of another post, and I’ll try to get to it.

  1. Jon, don’t know if this is the correct place to leave my comment, so let me know if you want these kinds of comments somewhere else. Obviously, I found you blog and enjoyed reading it…even the CD review. (Next time we travel in the same vehicle, I would welcome hearing the parts of it you recommend. :))

    I appreciate having these articles pointed out…the connection between the two is evident. Why would a naturally polygamous male be upset upon finding out that he is not the biological father of the child he thought he had sired? It seems the naturally polygamous author is over looking a “few” things.

    • It’s fine here, if you feel like copy/pasting it somewhere else I’ll just delete it here. You can actually post the comments on the actual posts, this was just so people knew the rules on commenting.

      And thanks for checking out the blog! Might have to take you up on bringing a CD next time :)

  2. I wanted to leave a comment on your Godly marriage blog. Is it not open for comments? I’m new to the whole leave comments on blogs even though I have one myself. :) I can never seem to figure them out.

    • Hey wannabeachristianwife, I’m sorry that you weren’t able to leave a comment there. I probably need to change the settings a bit to extend the time that comments can be added to a post; but so you know, I shut down the comments on each post after a certain number of days because it can be difficult, as the sole monitor of this site, to go back and respond to comments on posts I wrote 2 or 3 years ago.

      Sorry about that; I will probably change the settings soon. But if you’d like, you’re welcome to leave a comment here. Thanks!
