Basic Etiquette

Though it pains me to have to explicitly write it, I do want to explain something in case anyone reading lacks a sense of the way online interaction works in social media. The fact that we exchange a few remarks in the comments section of a post on another person’s blog does not present an open invitation to attempt to continue that same conversation on some random post on my blog. If anyone wishes to make a comment on my site, it should be at least vaguely related either to the post in question or something about which I have written here. Or it could be a friend stopping by to say hi.

If your comment doesn’t at least vaguely fit within those constraints, you’re really wasting your time and energy as I’ll simply delete the comment and likely flag you for future moderation or maybe even blacklist you. It’s sad that I have to post something which should be so basic and obvious, but apparently it’s necessary.

‘Nuff said.
