One of the items that came out of last week’s RE Barcamp (the blogging non-conference ahead of Inman’s Bloggers Connect and Real Estate Connect) was the need to have a comment policy stating what is and isn’t allowed.
I’ve always relied on the common sense of my readers but after reading an Active Rain-like “great post” comment from someone hoping (in vain) for a backlink, maybe common sense isn’t sufficient.
So here we go … I’ll have this added to the bottom of the page soon enough without the extra commentary you all love so much but here are the rules of the road:
1) No spam. Aside from the male enhancement products, sundry videos and offers to help shelter millions from third world nations, I’m also banning link span. Feel free to comment but if it’s clear you have nothing to say and just want a link, adios.
Want an example? Sure …
Hey, That was so nice post, It was so good info anyway I like it .
Incidentally, if you’re paying Sinai Marketing to help increase your digital footprint, the above is what they’re doing. Better to light your money on fire, me thinks. The comment stayed. The backlink’s long gone. So sorry.
2) No personal attacks. Unless your link spamming me from Sinai Marketing. Seriously, though, keep it above the belt and keep it clean. Not too much to ask.
3) No advertising above and beyond link spam. It’s great if you have a sure-fire solution for short sales but you’re not advertising it here.
That’s it. Pretty simple. Fairly straight forward.
And with that out of the way, onward we go …
