Comment Policy

Welcome to my blog.  I welcome comments from all readers and do occassionally respond directly to them either in the format of an comment on a comment or directly to the reader.

Please keep my comment policy in mind when you visit my blog.

Comment Form Guidelines: The comment form must be filled in with a proper or legitimate sounding name and URL. Comments using keywords, spam or splog-like URLs, or suspicious information in the comment form will be edited or deleted.

Email Privacy: Email addresses are required for commenting, and they are not published on the blog, nor shared. They may be used by me, the blog owner to privately contact the commenter.

Commenter Privacy and Protection: All email, snail mail, phone numbers, and any private and personal information posted in any comment will be deleted as soon as possible to protect the privacy of the commenter. To prevent such editing, never share this private information within the blog comment.

Language and Manners: This blog is “family friendly” and comments which include offensive or inappropriate language, or considered by the blog owner and administrator to be rude and offensive, will be edited or deleted. Play nice. I am particularly sensitive to comments that attack or dengigrate mothers who lost their children to adoption (for obvious reasons) and those that are hurtful to adoptees.  I do not tolerate attacks amongst commenters. If you dont like something a commenter says, please write them privately or take it to your own blog.

A Comment is Conversation: A comment which does not add to the conversation, runs of on an inappropriate tangent, or kills the conversation may be edited, moved, or deleted.
