Anyone is welcome to comment on the INS Blog regardless of belief (please note that commenting is never enabled on user-submitted stories). However, keep in mind that comments are moderated by me. I don’t want to start the “you have to be a member here” bullshit, so if you want to come on the playground here are the rules:
1. PLEASE STICK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND. If you are just coming here to start shit, seriously, don’t even start typing. I know some of you like to come in to argue but if you’re just going to come in here writing OMG U R ALL GOIN 2 HELL U EV0L BAYBEEKILLRZ!!!!!111! you’ll get booted harder than a David Akers field goal.
2. That being said–yes, those holding opposite views are allowed to post as long as they are civil and/or entertaining, so there is to be no whining if a comment is put up because if it’s up then I okayed it. Also, if your comment is unapproved or deleted do not cry OMG CENSORSHIP. You can always contact me to ask why and I’ll be more than happy to tell you, but more often than not it’s because you’re posting something that has nothing to do with the site or you’re getting boring. As longtime visitors know, though, I do not tolerate personal attacks or namecalling. If the comment thread degenerates into two people bickering BOTH will be told to take it elsewhere and if it gets bad enough I’ll shut down commenting on that particular entry. I generally stay out of things and let everyone fight their own battles so don’t appeal to me to referee things.
3. I DO NOT ARGUE ABOUT ABORTION. Period. End of sentence. Nor do I answer “challenges” or demands. If you don’t like what’s written here or how I respond, tough. I am not obligated to answer to anyone about what is written here and I will not waste keystrokes on it unless I’m bored.
To sum up:
- Stick to the topic
- Act mature
- Do not taunt Happy Fun INS Webmaster
- Got it? Good.
