Here, at ZME Science, we try to encourage active commenting as much as we can. The interaction between us, the bloggers, and you, the readers, will greatly help improve this blog, as well as your own on-site experience. So, again, if you have something to say, say it!
Now, although we trend lightly with the commenting system, we do have some rules guidelines in place, so that everybody’s happy.
- Be respectful. Don’t use fowl language, when commenting and show some respect to the blog, bloggers and fellow readers. You may encounter an article that may upset you to a certain degree. You can certainly speak out your mind about the subject and politely criticize the post, in a creative fashion, but don’t start any flame wars with the blogger or fellow commentators or you’ll get your comment deleted. If you’re provoked by another commentator, don’t respond, we’ll deal with him. In short, don’t troll! Just be courteous and you’ll have loads of fun.
- Be contributive. Comments like “hey! great post” or “thank you!” will not be tolerated. Please add value to your comments and contribute to the discussions or else you’ll just be labeled as a spammer and of course in term you’ll get your comment deleted.
- Be on topic. Keep it all on topic as much as possible and don’t go over-board.
- Be careful when linking. Link only to related articles in the comment field. Do not link back to your blog at the end of your comment, as a signature. Do so and I’ll be forced to delete the link. You already have a link back to your blog’s URL when you complete the URL field.
Well, that’s about all. Have a great time at the blog!
