Well, after giving it some more thought I’ve decided to implement the formal Comment Policy that we talked about last week.
Basically we’re going to use it as is for now. If we see a need to adjust down the road we’ll adapt it as required.
We’ve got a Comment Policy Page in place. And I’ve placed a link to it under the comment box so that anyone who may be unsure can refer to it prior to submitting their comment.
It stinks to have to make “formal rules” but unfortunately too many abusers were attempting to mess things up.
Does your blog have a comment policy spelled out?
