Hi! Leaving me a comment? Well, that’s just great. Comments totally make my day, and I try to respond to as many of them as I can, although sadly that’s not always possible as I have a LOT of “sitting around on my butt doing nothing” to get through every day. (Just joking – I currently work about 12 hours per day and I just can’t keep up with everything) I do read and cherish every single one of them, though, so if you are thinking of leaving a comment, you just became my new favourite person. Seriously.
There are, however, some ground rules. Basically, this blog is my property, in the same way that my house is my property. It’s my own personal space, and my rule when dealing with comments is that if I wouldn’t tolerate a certain type of behaviour from someone who was a guest in my home, I won’t tolerate it on my blog either. What that means is that it’s absolutely fine to disagree with, correct or question anything I say here – as long as you do it in a reasonable and respectful way. If your comment contains name-calling or abuse, or if I think you’ve left it purely as a personal attack, or to try and be hurtful, it will not be approved. Sorry.
ACCEPTABLE COMMENT: “Amber, I disagree with you and here’s why…. ”
UNACCEPTABLE COMMENT: “U r a fat ugly biitch nd i hope u die”
So, pretty self-explanatory, no? Also: text speak, as shown above, gets deleted. Write in English, or at least as close an approximation to it as you can manage. That’s what I do.
OK, serious stuff over. Back to the random acts of stupidity….
