Comment Policy

I have said this once and I’ll say it again, just to be clear.  I do not allow anonymous comments.  I need to know who you are.  If I don’t know you, or if you post under a pseudonym, your comment will be deleted.  Why you ask?

Jim west sums it up nicely on his blog:

“Deception, fraud, misrepresentation, criminal behavior, sock puppetery, geoff hudson, heck you name it and anonymity is a literal pandoras box of stupidity and wickedness.”

I have to agree.  If you don’t have the wherewithal to post under your real name, that tells me something about you.  You don’t wish to take responsibility for your own words, you are going to flame someone on the blog (myself or a commenter), you are dishonest, and/or you probably don’t have anything useful to say anyway.

Here is what you do (this really only applies to first time posters–if your comment has been posted, I have this information already): In your comment, if you wish to post under an assumed name or tag, you must include your real name and a place where you can be reached.  I’ll remove this information (edit it out) before I approve the comment, don’t worry.

  2. […] Since I am blogging through the class, I should state some general practices of the blog here for the reader so they know where I stand.  First, I will not be giving away any test or quiz information about the course (sorry to all the students who will be taking the same class in the years to come).  Second, all opinions expressed herein are mine alone.  All feedback and comments are welcome, so long as you follow the comment policy.
