It’s a blog – so that means there’s a conversation that is implied. To say thank you for leaving a comment, your link will have the “follow” attribute enabled.
To have a key-word link, use the following format: Sophia@CPR Classes
When you do that, the name is not part of the link that shows up – only the words “CPR Classes” have the link. It’s the best of both worlds… I get to have conversations with people, and you get to have a link that is tailor made to your content.
That said, not everything goes. Any comment placed on j.ronald.lee becomes the property of j.ronald.lee. You are making a public post on a public Web site, and it will be displayed and used as such. I reserve the right to edit comments. In general, I don’t do that unless you ask me to, or your comments are offensive.
Your comment may be removed or edited. In general, I don’t do this unless it falls under one of the following bullets:
- Leaving your comment as is would promote bad karma
- Your comment does not add value to the photo or conversation
- You include links that are not related to the photo or conversation
In addition, I will not link to sites that sell drugs or performance enhancing substances, pornography, or advocate intolerance. Those links are removed.
Okay, wrapping it up, make sure your comments are relevant. Use your name. Practice good karma.
I ask you to use a human name. I collect your email address. What do I do with these things?
First, I might send you an email asking you to sign up for a Gravatar. That’s so you can have a picture or icon next to your comment. Something that represents you.
Second, I might write an email to you if I want to communicate without posting to the blog. If I do this, it’s me writing an actual email.
That’s it. I don’t share your email address with anyone. Ever. I hate spam as much as you do.
I’ve taken reasonable precautions to ensure that your email address remains private. I’m using open source software to create the site, and it’s updated regularly. I believe that my hosting company does a decent job keeping my account secure. That said, the world is a dangerous place, and you’re using the Internet. It’s a pretty wild place out there. Sometimes bad things happen. Sometimes email addresses are hacked. I’m not some sort of uber-blog security expert, so what you see is what you get.
Please use the Internet at your own risk. Thank you!
