I enjoy interacting with you and gladly welcome your comments, feel free to share your thoughts. Your opinion matters to me a lot. Your feedback further sharpens and polishes me on the subject. Your comments add knowledge to the community we have here. To ensure that comments enhance the value of the subjects discussed and not deviate away from the subject of the article published on this blog, I have created a formal comment policy page “Comments Policy You Agree To Comply Before Commenting On A Blog.”
Typically any blog that you find on the blogosphere will have a comments slot at the bottom of every post. That doesn’t mean it is your passport to vent your frustrations or abuse that space with spam even though there isn’t any formal comment policy visible near the comment slot. Hence these comments policies not only bind you on this blog but also should hold good for every other blog that you find on the Internet.
Any content that I publish on this blog is my perspective on the subject, and I’m sharing my expertise on the subject and need not be accurate or correct information. You are, therefore, requested to confirm the authenticity and veracity of the subjects published before applying or adopting the information.
Please note that this blog receives hundreds of comments for each blog post; however, only a very few, may be one or two, are approved. Comments are thoroughly read and only those comments that add value to the content are approved and the rest deleted. While spam comments continue to proliferate, I can and will do my part to help combat it. I have a spam filter in place that automatically catches the majority of the automated spam comments, and if at all any slip through the filter, I delete it immediately. All IP addresses used for spamming will be reported to the Internet blacklists, the ISPs/hosts of the offending domain will be notified, and the owner of the IP block will be notified of the problem.
This blog has a diverse audience with different sensibilities and opinions. Hence, please avoid harsh language and the use of profanity. Flaming or use of threatening language or defaming anybody/any institution or any such intellectual property rights violation is not allowed nor will it be tolerated.
Ideally, your comment will be under 200 well chosen words with paragraphs, grammar, punctuation, and spaces as found necessary. No advertisements, canvassing for products and services on the comments section will be allowed.
No one line comments praising the blog, an article, or the author will be tolerated. Same would be the case with your mention about subscribing to this blog. Who cares whether you’re subscribed to this blog’s RSS feed or shared an article of this blog on Facebook or Twitter? Apparently the comment should be cohesive to the content of an article and should add value to the readers and thought provoking.
Relevant links in comments are actively encouraged. If you are leaving a comment on my blog and want to point to a link on your own or somebody else’s site that is relevant to the topic, then please feel free to do so. This adds to the conversation and improves the blog but note that excessive and/or inappropriate links will be removed.
Double check your links, because any link which returns an error, leads to a site under construction or cannot be loaded by the browser will be removed. Same is the fate for affiliate links.
You are welcome to add your website’s link in the designated URL box just below your name and e-mail ID, and your name will automatically be hyperlinked but make sure you add a proper human name. I really don’t feel comfortable addressing someone as Dear “So and so website” or “Some dirty company, business, or keyword” when responding to a comment. It would be really annoying to other readers as well reading “Some Spam Site said:” and then reading your comment after that. Hence in the event that I know you, I’ll simply modify your anchor text to include your name; otherwise I’ll delete the reference to your website or perhaps your entire comment.
Please use a valid e-mail ID when commenting on the articles. It will not be displayed unless you type it in the body of your comment (if found in the body, I usually edit it out) and you will not be subscribed to any mailing list by leaving a comment.
In order to maintain the integrity of the blog and its contents, all comments, trackbacks and pingbacks made to MT Herald are moderated. I work to review and approve comments as quickly as possible, but please do not resubmit your comment if it does not appear right away.
I reserve the right to edit or delete comments as I feel necessary. Irrelevant comments will be deleted at once, and blatant spelling and grammatical errors will be edited, and serious edits will be notated at the end of the comment. If your comment conveys a coherent thought, it may just be edited; tirades will most likely be deleted. At no time will I attempt to alter the core meaning of a comment.
Once a person publishes a comment on my blog, he or she will be the copyright holder of that comment; i.e., you, and only you, are responsible for your words. They are yours and you get to keep them; however, by posting your comments to this blog, you are granting me the right, in perpetuity, to use, alter, and/or display them, howsoever, I see fit. Once your comment is submitted, that’s it – you’re immortalized.
This comment policy may be updated as and when needed ideally to suit the laws and requirements, so please make sure to check back every so often before leaving a comment on this blog.
It is implied that you have read and understood this page titled “Comments Policy You Agree To Comply Before Commenting On A Blog” and agree to comply before leaving a comment on MT Herald.
